From Nights, 9:30 pm on 26 June 2019

Following the devastating 15 March mosque attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and French President Emmanuel Macron met, alongside other world and tech leaders, to adopt the 'Christchurch Call'. The Christchurch Call aims to combat online terrorism and violent extremism. The European Commission was a major supporter of the Call, alongside eight EU member states.

The European Union's Commissioner for the Security Union, Sir Julian Beresford King KCVO CMG will present the annual National Centre for Research on Europe's (NCRE) prestigious Europa Lecture at the University of Canterbury on Thursday 27 June. He will be speaking about 'The Christchurch Call - bringing the conversation home', along with New Zealand MPs Gerry Brownlee and Golriz Ghahraman.

Golriz Ghahraman joins us to give her take on what can be done in New Zealand.
