After Charlie Hebdo: terror, racism and free speech
As the world looked on in horror at the Paris terror attacks of January and November 2015, France found itself at the centre of a war that has split across nations and continents. The attacks set in motion a steady creep towards ever more repressive state surveillance, and have fuelled the resurgence of the far right across Europe, while leaving the left dangerously divided. These developments raise profound questions about a number of issues central to contemporary debates, including the nature of national identity, the limits to freedom of speech, and the role of both traditional and social media.
French journalist and activist Rokhaya Diallo will host a discussion on the social and political impact of the Paris attacks in Europe and beyond, joined by the editors of After Charlie Hebdo including Gavan Titley, Des Freedman, Gholam Khiabany and Aurélien Mondon.
