In this webinar, hosted by the Daily Maverick's Burning Planet section, Director Cormac Cullinan will join investigative journalist, Tiara Walters, and author of 'The Polar Worlds', Mikaa Mered, as they attempt to shine a light on this secretive world and answer a key questions facing the treaty: Is it still fit for purpose six decades after entering into force? Or is it time to recognise the rights of Antarctica?
