Shami Chakrabarti with Kate Mosse (2015 Event)

A day after Shami Chakrabarti joined the campaigning organisation Liberty, New York’s Twin Towers were attacked. Ever since, she has fought a passionate campaign for human rights in the face of ASBOs, control orders and the War on Terror. In her book On Liberty, Chakrabarti argues that national security should never compromise human rights and vows to continue the battle against violations such as slavery and gender inequality. She discusses her work and campaigning with acclaimed author Kate Mosse in an event recorded live at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
