Speaking on the origins of genocide and crimes against humanity at the 2016 Integrity 20 Program Launch

Philippe Sands QC

I am grateful for the chance to reflect on what may be the greatest challenge that free nations face today. How to restore integrity and public trust to Western democracies at a critical moment in our history.

Many of the international participants were – as you know – full of genuine praise not just for the fascinating way you blended such disparate but relevant content, but also for the smooth organisation of the conference, the warm hospitality, and the overall calibre of the event…

I try my best to deliver something that is undeniably true. So that if the fundamentalists care to see my performance, they can look at themselves and laugh.

Thank you for this marvellous, multiple-day extravaganza… I’ve been to a lot of conferences and this is one of the best run, nicest, most impressive, most eclectic gatherings. It’s really been a treat.
