Penny Lecture

Penny Lecture | On Liberty by Shami Chakrabarti

  • 25 November 2014 6:30-8pm

On 11 September 2001, our world changed. The West's response to 9/11 has morphed into a period of exception. Governments have decided that the rule of law and human rights are often too costly. In this Penny Lecture, Shami Chakrabarti, Director of leading Human Rights organisation Liberty, explores why our fundamental rights and freedoms are indispensable. She shows, too, the unprecedented pressures those rights are under today. Drawing on her own work in high-profile campaigns, from privacy laws to anti-terror legislation, Chakrabarti shows the threats to our democratic institutions and why our rights are paramount in upholding democracy.

Suitable for

  • Any age


In keeping with the tradition of the Penny Lectures, which began over 125 years ago at the Old Vic Theatre in Waterloo, entry will be charged at one penny on the door.
