On Wednesday 5 February the School hosted a visit by Dr Prosper Maguchu. Dr Maguchu is a lawyer, human rights activist and scholar at risk from Zimbabwe. Currently Visiting Associate Professor at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, he delivered a presentation in the Moot Court room on the subject 'Trade Unionism and Academic Freedom in Zimbabwe.' Dr Maguchu researches in the areas of transitional justice, corruption and financial crimes. The talk was well-attended by staff and students from across the university and was followed by a lively questions and answers session. It was one of a series of talks delivered by Dr Maguchu at Irish universities as part of a speaking tour organised by Scholars at Risk Ireland. The UCD talk was organised and chaired by Dr Mark Coen.
