In conversation with Kira Huju from the Oxford Working Group on Colonialism, Indian Member of Parliament Dr Shashi Tharoor discusses the need to confront the living legacies of the British Raj in UK society and universities.

Building on his 2016 book Inglorious Empire: What the British Did to India, Dr Tharoor explains why a frank conversation about colonialism is necessary but is yet to be had, and how to go about conducting it.
