Speaker information

Professor Leif Wenar

Professor Leif Wenar will be discussing his groundbreaking new book in which he identifies the causes of global theft of natural resources that underpins so much modern poverty and war. He points the finger at the West and its support for rules of global ownership of resources that cause so much harm. He also offers a clear set of proposals for what must be done to fix this global state of moral harm.

Professor Wenar will be taking questions and comments from the audience in an interactive conversation about his book.The event will be chaired by Dr Saladin Meckled-Garcia, School of Public Policy and Director of the UCL Institute for Human Rights, with comments and reflections by Dr Amanda Greene, UCL Philosopy and Dr Jeff Howard, SPP.
