Gillian Triggs was Australia’s Human Rights Commissioner - and is someone that doesn’t require introduction. Formerly the Dean of the Sydney Law School and now Professor of the Melbourne Law School - she is a globally recognised legal authority on human rights and is author of the book ‘Speaking Up’.

Gillian caught up with Misha Zelinsky to talk about all things related to foreign and domestic human rights.

It was an incredibly diverse discussion covering issues such as the rule of law, the future of democracy, how governments use executive power to bully individuals, how do deal with indigenous reconciliation and why Australia lags so far behind in when it comes to tangible gender equality.
