From abuses in our detention centres to oil spills in the Niger Delta, the law is increasingly called upon by individuals and communities to hear evidence of the harm perpetrated by governments and corporations.

On Thursday 5 October,  Richard Hermer (QC, Matrix Chambers) joined Keren Adams (Human Rights Law Centre), and Shen Narayanasamy (GetUp!) to discuss how we can use strategic litigation and campaigning to hold the state and corporations to account for human rights abuses.
