Flesh and Blood – With Mukesh Kapila

Flesh and Blood explores the senseless acts of kindness and cruelty all around us. How are the life chances, life choices, and life styles of ordinary people shaped by geopolitics and the secular trends of globalisation? What shapes our personal destiny and can we wrest back our own control of it? The blog features a roster of contributors, and is curated by Mukesh Kapila – Professor of Global Health and Humanitarian Affairs at the University of Manchester and former Special Adviser to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
