Yasmin Alibhai-Brown and Bidisha (2015 Event)

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is one of Britain’s most important commentators on multiculturalism: in Exotic England she describes ‘a curious nation’ that has developed thanks to its long history of immigration. Bidisha is a writer and human rights journalist whose book Asylum and Exile depicts the bravery of people who have left everything behind to seek sanctuary on this island. The two writers get together in this event, recorded live at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, to discuss what national identity means in an era of multiracial culture.
