The Last Colony - A Tale of Exile, Justice and Britain's Colonial Legacy

In conversation with Toby Mundy
Sunday 25th September, 5.30-6.30pm

Baillie Gifford Big Tent


After the Second World War, new international rules heralded an age of human rights and self-determination. Supported by Britain, these unprecedented changes sought to end the scourge of colonialism. But how committed was Britain?

Offering a unique and vital contribution to the discussion around Britain's colonial past, The Last Colony is a powerful tale about the making of modern international law, one woman's fight for justice and a personal journey that culminates with a historic ruling. Philippe Sands is the award-winning author of the bestselling works East West Street and The Ratline.

'A gripping adventure, an astounding journey of self-discovery and a terrifying and timely portrait of evil in all ots complexity, banality, self-justification and madness. A stunning achievement.' Stephen Fry
