Frank Delaney

Hay Festival 1996, 
The Irish broadcaster and novelist introduces his book A Stranger in Their Midst - "With its drama verging on the operatic, as the community lights up in the name of progress, it is plunged ever deeper into moral darkness. Fantastic stuff. I can't help feeling that if Verdi were around today, he and Delaney would make a great team" - Independent

La justicia en los procesos de paz. Philippe Sands y Rodrigo Uprimny en conversación con Hassan Nassar

Los sistemas judiciales adscritos a la legislación de un país se ven a menudo cuestionados cuando dicho país pasa por un proceso de transición política, por ejemplo, un proceso de paz o una transición de un sistema político a otro. ¿Qué hemos aprendido de estos procesos a lo largo de la historia? ¿Cuál es el papel del derecho dentro de los procesos de reparación y perdón? Hassan Nassar habla sobre estas cuestiones con el abogado, escritor y defensor de los derechos humanos Philippe Sands (Reino Unido) y el jurista Rodrigo Uprimny (Colombia).

Windblown: Landscape, Legacy and Loss

Hay Festival 2018, 

The Great Storm of 1987 is etched firmly into the national memory. Everyone who was there that night remembers how hurricane-force winds struck southern Britain without warning, claiming 18 lives, uprooting more than 15 million trees and reshaping the landscape for future generations. Thirty years on, the discovery of an old photograph inspires the author to make a journey into that landscape. Weaving her own memories and personal experiences with those of fishermen and lighthouse keepers, rough sleepers and refugees, she creates a unique portrait of this extraordinary event and a moving exploration of legacy and loss. Chaired by Corisande Albert.
