Event Description

The Amnesty International Annual Lecture returns with one of the world's sharpest commentators on international affairs and the struggle for human rights and dignity.

Professor Noam Chomsky surveys the threats and prospects of our early 21st century (the growing gap between North and South; American exceptionalism - even under Obama; the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and their aftermaths; the financial bailouts; the raids by unmanned US drones on Pakistani citizens; the Israeli assault on Gaza; the terrorist atrocities in Mumbai) - but finds also a hope for the future of liberty in the 'unprecedented international global justice movements'.


“Chomsky is a global phenomenon . . . perhaps the most widely read voice on foreign policy on the planet”
New York Times Book Review

Noam Chomsky is a professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at MIT and is author of numerous bestselling books, the latest of which, Hope and Prospects, will be published by Penguin in November.

Prof Chomsky’s lecture will be followed by a question and answer session chaired by William Crawley.
In association with the Human Rights Centre at Queen’s and Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queen's.
