Ms Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty
"Human Rights as Human Values"
Ms Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty and Chancellor of Oxford Brookes University delivered this lecture on Human Rights as part of the Tanner Lecture Series at the University Museum Oxford on 15th May 2014.
The purpose of the Tanner Lectures is to advance and reflect upon the scholarly and scientific learning relating to human values. This intention embraces the entire range of values pertinent to the human condition, interest, behaviour, and aspiration. Appointment as a Tanner lecturer is a recognition for uncommon achievement and outstanding abilities in the field of human values. The lecturers may be elicited from philosophy, religion, the humanities, the sciences, the creative arts, and learned professions, or from leadership in public or private affairs. The lectureships are international and intercultural and transcend ethnic, national, religious, and ideological distinctions.
The lecture can be viewed or downloaded as audio or video.
