18 July New World (Dis)Order: What do Turkey, Russia and Brazil tell us about freedom and rights?

Date: 18 July, 6:30-8pm at ECFR

Venue: European Council on Foreign Relations, London

Tickets: Free, but space is limited. Email [email protected] if you’d like to attend.

Index, in partnership with the European Council on Foreign Relations, is holding a timely debate on the shifting world order and its impact on rights and freedoms. The event will also launch the latest issue of Index on Censorship magazine, including a special report on the multipolar world.

The balance of economic, political and social power is shifting across the world; in this debate we will ask how this might affect individuals’ rights and freedoms. In the last two months we have seen protests across the world as citizens challenge their governments. Meanwhile news of US internet companies being tapped by the NSA continue to hit the headlines. Discussions of who is tapping whom continue to be uncovered. From nations to companies, who has the power now?

The expert panelists include:  Index CEO Kirsty Hughes, ECFR Senior Policy Fellow Anthony Dworkin, and Turkish journalist and writer Ece Temelkuran.

One response to “18 July New World (Dis)Order: What do Turkey, Russia and Brazil tell us about freedom and rights?”

  1. Increasing censorship is increasing in countries that used to be democratic.

    The big weapon manufacturers keep supplying “rebels” in the middle east in a never ending terrorism.
    Then they will asked for “humanitarian aid” and UN will rain missiles and bombs down upon a sovereign country as they have done in Afghanistan, Iraq,Libya and now Syria is next.
    The hornets nest of Fundamental has been disturbed and the perpetrators will reap the whirlwind
