Geoffrey Robertson on free speech: part 1

International human-rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson QC discusses free speech and how to balance privacy and national security in this three-part video.

He weighs up the release of information in the public’s interest versus the fate of international whistleblowers such as Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden.

This event took place on 14 November 2013 as part of the Big Ideas Under the Dome lecture series, celebrating the centenary of the Library's domed La Trobe Reading Room and its role in inspiring creativity and ideas.

A transcript of this recording will be available soon.
