Bianca Jagger on human rights
Tom Sutcliffe looks at the future of human rights with the campaigner Bianca Jagger and academic Stephen Hopgood. Jagger points to the failure of the global community to tackle violence against women and girls, while Hopgood sounds the death knell for international Human Rights with the rise of religious conservatism and the decline in influence of Europe and America. Pakistan's Tribal Area close to Afghanistan is the setting for Fatima Bhutto's debut novel, and the playwright Howard Brenton examines the chaos of the partition of India in his latest production, Drawing The Line.
Producer: Katy Hickman.
Bianca Jagger is the founder and Chair of the Bianca Jagger Human Rights Foundation.
Bianca’s Longford Lecture, ‘Ending Violence Against Women and Girls and the Culture of Impunity: achieving the missing Millennium Development Goal target’, is available online.
