NI: Human Rights in an Age of Trump and Brexit

Join us on 22 February in Queen’s University Belfast for the next event in our Global Challenges Debates Series and hear from world-leading experts to discuss some of the greatest challenges facing global politics today.

To what extent do the politics of Brexit and of President Trump affect human rights? Polarized debates about UK, European, and US politics and society have seen different anxieties expressed, and rival futures advocated.

In this public discussion, two of the world’s leading thinkers consider the continuities, complexities, and transformations involved in what some have seen as a new era of western politics.
