Description

2016 The Castan Centre for Human Rights Law / King & Wood Mallesons Annual Lecture with Human Rights Commissioner Edward Santow. What role should international human rights law play in addressing Australia’s most difficult social questions? Does human rights law provide a comprehensive answer to those questions, or does it provide a way to arrive at that answer? This speech will consider these questions by reference to some pressing issues, such as the proposal for marriage equality, the treatment of people in detention and the debate on free speech.
