"Freedom to Think: The Long Struggle to Liberate our Minds", by Susie Alegre, out on 7th April


Freedom to Think: The Long Struggle to Liberate our Minds draws on TPP Associate Susie Alegre’s 25 years as an international lawyer working on human rights and the rule of law internationally.  It explores the ways that the law responds to threats to our freedom of thought with examples of responses to propaganda in Rwanda and Myanmar, the manipulation of voters in electoral processes, the power of disinformation and the use of technology in criminal justice processes in India and the UK.  Highlighting the risks of developments in technology, AI and neuroscience for our inner freedom, the book is a timely call to remember why human rights matter to all of us and what we need to do to make them effective.
