Globalisation and the Crisis of the Individual
22/11/2011, 18:00 - 20:00
Baroness Helena Kennedy, an expert in human rights law, civil liberties and constitutional issues delivered a thought-provoking and impassioned speech examining the impact of globalisation on the values that underpin developed democracies and the ways social justice, human rights, law, politics and private life have been affected.
One of Britain’s most distinguished lawyers, Helena Kennedy has spent her professional life giving voice to those who have least power within the system, championing civil liberties and promoting human rights.
She has used many public platforms – including the House of Lords, to which she was elevated in 1997 – to argue with passion, wit and humanity for social justice. She has also written and broadcast on a wide range of issues, from medical negligence to terrorism to the rights of women and children.
In memory of the late Professor Hadyn Ellis (1945-2006), the Hadyn Ellis Distinguished Lecture Series brings speakers of international distinction to Cardiff University to deliver prestigious public lectures.
