The Magna Carta: Our freedom yesterday and tomorrow

A event discussing the contemporary relevance of the Magna Carta, and how its legacy ¬¬should be carried into the future.

Event Panel:

Sir Robert Worcester - Magna Carta 800 Committee

Anthony Barnett - Founder of Open Democracy

In the build-up to the official celebrations of the Magna Carta 800th Anniversary in 2015, Our Democratic Heritage would like to invite you to a debate in Bloomsbury on 15 June 2013, which will discuss the contemporary relevance of the Magna Carta, and how its legacy ¬¬should be carried into the future. Widely recognised as a pivotal document in the development of the rule of law, the debate discusses alternate interpretations of Magna Carta’s meaning for a contemporary audience. Please find attached a promotional flyer for this event.

These activities for Magna Carta Day 2013 are building towards the 800th Anniversary of Magna Carta in 2015. Our Democratic Heritage is also part of the Magna Carta 800 Committee, the group charged with coordinating the anniversary celebrations. The Committee’s Chairman, Sir Robert Worcester, is a trustee of Our Democratic Heritage.
