VIDEO: THE 2017 EDWARD W. SAID LONDON LECTURE

Mahmood Mamdani: Justice Not Revenge – Examining the Concept of Revolutionary Justice.

We are pleased to present the film of the 2017 Edward W. Said London Lecture by internationally renowned academic and author Mahmood Mamdani. Professor Mamdani examined the concept of revolutionary justice to a sell out audience at this lecture in London at The British Museum on 31 March 2017.

In the lecture Professor Mamdani looks at how South Africa’s transition from apartheid could be examined as a critique of the lessons on international justice that have been drawn from the Nuremberg trials. He reflects on the writings of Aimé Césaire on Haiti and of Nelson Mandela in southern Africa to explore notions of revolutionary justice.
