Conor Gearty & Douglas Murray (2017 Event)

In The Strange Death of Europe, Douglas Murray travels from places where migrants land to places where they end up, talking to people who welcome them and others who don't, and finds a continent in a serious muddle. In On Fantasy Island, Conor Gearty, Director of the LSE's Institute of Public Affairs, explores another area of confusion, Europe and the Human Rights Act, and suggests a way forward. Hear the pair discuss their books in this event recorded live at the 2017 Edinburgh International Book Festival, chaired by Rosemary Burnett.
