Kent is hosting an expert panel debate around international law and its impact on social justice, at its Canterbury campus on Wednesday 13 October (18.30-19.30).

The panel will share its knowledge, experience and expertise to ask the question – Is International Law failing to achieve social justice?

Chaired by Dr Elizabeth Howe OBE, the panel of experts will include Professor Diamond Ashiagbor (Professor of Law and Director of Postgraduate Research at Kent Law School), Emeritus Professor Nick Grief (Kent Law School), human rights lawyer Sir Geoffrey Nice QC and Dr Josipa Šarić (Kent Law School).

This is Kent’s third event in the series of ‘Dare to Ask’, a topical panel debate series, which aims to spark imagination and debate and connect audiences with experts from across the disciplines and the world. It is the first in the series to be held in person, taking place in the Templeman Library Lecture Theatre. The event open to the public will also be live streamed on the University’s YouTube channel for those wishing to attend virtually.
