Farmleigh House and Estate

Patrick Alley is one of the three founders of Global Witness which is this year celebrating the 30th anniversary of its foundation in 1993. Global Witness has become one of the world’s leading investigative organisations dedicated to rooting out corruption and environmental and human rights abuses around the world, with Patrick taking part in over fifty field investigations in South East Asia, Africa and Europe. Taking the findings to lawmakers and into the boardrooms of multinational companies he and his colleagues have challenged the assumption that you can’t change things. Global Witness now has major focus on tackling the climate crisis.

Patrick is the author of ‘Very Bad People’, published in 2022, which charts some of Global Witness’ key investigations. Alongside his two co-founders, Patrick received the 2014 Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship. Global Witness was nominated for the 2003 Nobel Peace Prize for their work exposing the murderous trade in blood diamonds.
This talk at Farmleigh is the first in a series that will take place this season as part of the run up to the 75th anniversary, on the 10th December next, of the publication of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Doors open at 2.30pm for a 3pm start.
