In this special episode of RightsUp, the Oxford Human Rights Hub podcast, Prof Sandy Fredman discusses her new book, Comparative Human Rights Law (OUP), with Judge Edwin Cameron. 

On December 6th, the Oxford Human Rights Hub launched a three-part podcast series featuring discussions around Professor Sandy Fredman's new book, Comparative Human Rights Law (OUP). The episodes feature Sandy in conversation with Judge Edwin Cameron (South African Constitutional Court), Justice S. Muralidhar (Delhi High Court), and Professor Colm O'Cinneide (UCL).

This first episode takes Sandy Fredman’s new book, Comparative Human Rights Law, as a starting point for global conversation around the role of law, lawyers, courts, and judges in forwarding human rights in different contexts. Each episode will delve into the overarching themes of the book and highlight some specific examples from different jurisdictions — on issues such as capital punishment, abortion, the right to housing, health, and education, and the right to freedom of speech and religion.

In this discussion, Sandy speaks with Judge Edwin Cameron, who recently retired from the Constitutional Court of South Africa after serving for more than two decades as a judge in South African courts.
