How human rights can be defended and extended

Gillian Triggs and Julian Burnside will discuss the many serious threats to human rights we presently face over the treatment of asylum seekers, the rise of anti-Muslim extremism, the challenge to the legal protections against expressions of racial hatred, the passage of far-reaching anti-terror laws, and the many areas where discrimination against women and indigenous Australians still exist.
