Narrative power: Is the West promoting global justice?

This town hall will explore whether Western media, politics and public rhetoric shape global narratives about justice.

It will examine claims that the West promotes free speech while silencing dissent, using examples like the global war on terror to discuss how potential patterns of narrative control play out on the world stage. Are Western media and politics a force for good or are they just advancing their own interests?

Fatima Bhutto, Steve Clemons, Konstantin Kisin, students and recent graduates will join us on stage at the Bradford Literature Festival as we delve into these pressing questions.

 

Please note this event will be filmed and recorded live for Doha Debates, and at points this may obstruct your view for a short time. If you prefer not to be filmed during the event please let our team know on arrival and we will give you a yellow lanyard and attempt to seat you in a location that is outside of the filming area.
