SOLD OUT. Please watch the live webcast.

Detail from cover of "Free Speech." Detail from book cover.

Description

Today, anyone with an Internet connection can reach millions of people worldwide. Yet despite this flood of opinions, freedom of speech is in peril, argues Timothy Garton Ash. Drawing on a lifetime of writing about dictatorships and dissidents, he argues that in today's connected world, which he calls "cosmopolis," the way to combine freedom and diversity is to have more but also better free speech. Across all cultural divides we must strive to agree on how we disagree.

With vivid examples, from his personal experience of China's Orwellian censorship apparatus to the controversy around Charlie Hebdo to a very English court case involving food writer Nigella Lawson, he proposes a framework for civilized conflict in a world where we are all becoming neighbors.

Timothy Garton Ash is Isaiah Berlin Professorial Fellow Professor of European Studies and honorary chair, St Antony's College European Studies Centre, University of Oxford.

Speaker: Timothy Garton Ash
