0907: Professor Jeremy Waldron
Esteemed law professor at New York University and Oxford. Our mothers told us sticks and stones may break your bones but words can never hurt you. But words can and do hurt. In fact, they can be downright dangerous warns New Zealander Jeremy Waldron, an esteemed law professor at New York University and the University of Oxford. He's been described as the leading political and legal philosopher of our day. In the legal world, he is our most famous New Zealander. Professor Waldron is an outspoken critic of drone warfare, torture and hate speech, writing books that make the case for their corrosive effects in a democracy. He's in demand for lectures all over the world. He was in New Zealand before Christmas to deliver the Robin Cooke lecture at Victoria University.
