Renowned and respected worldwide for his work as a human rights barrister, academic, author and broadcaster and one of the world’s great minds, Geoffrey Robertson will take to the stage in an evening of thought and analysis as he
discusses some of the biggest issues of our time. He will discuss Brexit and Trump in a post-truth era and calls for Australia’s constitutional regeneration after the bushfires. He will explain what is really happening to the royal family and how fake news distorts democracy.
He will also explain what is happening to Julian Assange, how to stop the rich from inheriting the world, and the thinking behind his upcoming book Bad People – And How to Be Rid of Them. The show will give an insight into his life and famous cases and his crusade to restore cultural property from museums around the world to the people from whom it was stolen.
