Description

Are you aware of the link between consumerism and terrorism?

From toothpaste to smartphones, millions of products contain ‘blood oil’ – a term coined to describe the little-known element in everyday items that is fuelling some of the world’s most terrifying regimes and militias.

Join us for an evening with Professor Leif Wenar – author of Blood Oil and the Chair of Philosophy and Law at King’s College London – to uncover the murky truth of the multi-trillion dollar oil trade, and ultimately how Western demand is affecting government policy in authoritarian countries from Saudi Arabia to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
