Synopsis

An essential book for everyone who believes in freedom and equality, written by an award-winning international human rights lawer

If we were to take an exam on how we are functioning as a society today, we would undoubtedly fail. Xenophobic populists are winning elections, economic inequality is reaching alarming levels, institutional racism remains unaddressed, and the climate crisis is nearing a tipping point.
We need a new world. In Radical Justice, Nani Jansen Reventlow outlines how we can start building a fundamentally different future today—one where everyone is truly free, equal, and able to thrive. Drawing from her extensive experience as an international human rights lawyer and inspired by prominent thinkers in anti-racism and social justice, she presents a compelling collection of essays. These essays are incisive and powerful, guaranteed to leave a lasting impact on every reader, and offer suggestions on further learning, reflection and – yes – action.

‘The one audience question I always get following any kind of public speaking is what people can do to take action. That is a great question, because we all can take action. And with that, we can make a difference. […] We don’t all have to do grand things or be a hero – lead mass rallies or go on hunger strike. Each of us can make good trouble in different ways. It’s our move to build a better world, and we need to do it now.’ – Nani Jansen Reventlow
