Securing Freedom

How do we balance our belief in human freedom with the need to defend ourselves against those who believe the use of terror can be justified? Can our handling of security risk and the laws we pass to deal with them distort our response to the threat of terrorism? In this sobering and remarkably frank analysis based on her 2011 Reith Lectures, Eliza Manningham-Buller, ex-Director General of MI5, the British Security Service, talks about key events during her tenure - from the threat of the IRA to al-Qaeda. She states that torture works but must never be used, how intelligence is gathered and why surveillance is necessary to protect democracy, the importance of the rule of law and why without security there can be no liberty.

About the Author

Eliza Manningham-Buller joined MI5 in 1974. During her career she worked to counter the full range of security threats facing the UK, her main focus being counterterrorism. She led the section responsible for investigating international terrorism at the time of the Lockerbie bombing. Later she was posted to Washington as the senior liaison officer from MI5 to the US intelligence community, a period that coincided with the first Gulf War in 1991. On her return to London the following year she established and led a new section responsible for countering Irish terrorism on the British mainland. Manningham-Buller was promoted to the MI5 management board in 1993. She was appointed Deputy Director-General in 1997.
