Hay Festival Cartagena de Indias brings readers and writers together to share stories and ideas, featuring a line-up of over 180 artists, thinkers and leaders from around the world.
This year, British Council supported three British writers attending the festival: Misha Glenny, Philippe Sands and Hisham Matar.
In this podcast British Council Arts Podcast presenter Georgina Godwin talks to Franco-British lawyer Philippe Sands. Sands is the author of 16 books on international law, and his latest book East West Street: On the Origins of Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity was awarded the 2016 Baillie Gifford Prize for non-fiction. It was released in English in May 2016, and next year will be published in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Turkish and Chinese.
A specialist in international law, he appears as counsel and advocate before many international courts and tribunals including the International Court of Justice, the European Court of Human Rights and the International Criminal Court, among others.
