Does Africa Need our Outrage?

Video

With Graeme Wood, Peter Tatchell, Dorcas Erskine and Brigid Hains

How do we ensure that international outrage on justice and rights issues is communicated and channelled more effectively, so as to provide vital moral and practical support for grass-roots activism?

The RSA and Aeon Magazine brings together a panel of expert commentators to debate the issue and to explore ways of encouraging a more positive, intelligently informed and productive international human rights discourse and engagement.

Speakers: Graeme Wood, contributing editor to The Atlantic: Peter Tatchell, renowned human rights and LGBT global justice campaigner and Dorcas Erskine, National Coordinator for the Poppy Project and former Head of Policy for ActionAid.

Chair: Brigid Hains, co-founder and editor of Aeon magazine and director of Touchstone Trust
