Comparative Human Rights Law Book Launch: Sandy Fredman in Conversation with Justice S. Muralidhar

13th December 2019

This is a special episode of RightsUp, which 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 Justice S. Muralidhar, a judge on the High Court of Delhi, who has delivered judgments in some of the most important housing rights cases in India. They discuss a right to housing and the value of comparing how different legal systems deal with this issue.
