09 December 2005. RUSI, Whitehall. Six months ago, Professor Conor Gearty argued at RUSI that all special terrorism laws should be abolished. Little more than a week later, London was bombed. Now, with the Government pushing further terrorism law, he returns, to make the argument afresh with renewed urgency, opposed by a new panel of informed critics and with the terrible evidence of July 7th leading much opinion more fiercely against him. There will be an opportunity for comment from the audience and the event will be recorded by the BBC for broadcast on Radio 4 the following week.
* Professor Conor Gearty: London School of Economics
* Dr Jonathan Eyal: Director of Studies, RUSI
* Jan Berry: Chairman of the Police Federation
* Edward Garnier QC, MP: Shadow Home Affairs Minister
* Alasdair Palmer: Public Policy Editor, Sunday Telegraph
The evening is hosted and the programme presented by the BBC’s Evan Davis.
