Season 4 Episode 2

The new ‘Elevating Humanity’ series of our podcast continues this week with Lady Mariéme Jamme’s latest guest Nazir Azfal. Nazir talks to Lady Mariéme about the work he did as a UK prosecutor, including how he has helped change the law on forced marriage by creating a protection order that has saved 2800 lives to date. Nazir has received an OBE for his amazing work for justice and tells Lady Mariéme that “we are stronger as a community than we are as one”. Nazir also discusses his experiences of racism and the importance of teaching equality to the next generation to prevent discrimination.
