The model for Australia’s non-discrimination and equality opportunity laws has been largely unchanged for almost 40 years. How much has it achieved in changing social attitudes? Are we relying on laws that go too far and too hard at an issue with deep anthropological and cultural roots? Professor Simon Rice explores the problem of discrimination and possible new ways of tackling it.
Adelaide Festival of Ideas session, Elder Hall, 11:30 am, Saturday 19th October, 2013. Chaired by John Williams.
