April 16, 2019

Sejal Parmar, Assistant Professor of Law at the Department of Legal Studies and Core Faculty Member of CMDS discusses the UK’s possible extradition of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to the United States for computer hacking and the UK Foreign Office’s new campaign on the defence of media freedom in the European Journal of International Law (EJIL) blog, EJIL Talk. Parmar argues that the “UK’s leadership on media freedom depends on the UK’s own credibility in the field”.
