The Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin is hosting a very interesting event from a media perspective on Thursday 27 May between 6:30 – 8:00pm. Read more below and on the Science Gallery website.

Libel laws are having a chilling effect both on scientific research and journalistic freedom in the UK and Ireland as current libel laws may intimidate journalists, scientists and publishers into silence in fear of prosecution. The effect has been dubbed “libel chill” and has been described as de facto censorship. At this pivotal event some of the most important figures in the current UK libel reform campaign come to Dublin including Simon Singh, the journalist who successfully defended himself after a two year libel battle with the British Chiropractic Association, and cardiologist Peter Wilmshurst, who is currently being sued for libel in the biggest ongoing medical libel case.

Tickets go on general sale (€15) at midday on 11 May.
