Philippe Sands: Towards a Less Brutal World image

How does the United Nations use the law to hold governments to account? In The Last Colony Philippe Sands QC highlights the case of the Chagos Archipelago. In the 1960s, Britain forcibly removed the inhabitants of the island.
Join Sands today in conversation with Professor of the History of Slavery Olivette Otele to explore the riveting and enraging story of the landmark international judgement that brought Britain’s colonial rule in Africa to an end.
