"Dignity, Human Rights, and Torture"

Jeremy Waldron
University Professor, New York University School of Law

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes legal philosopher Jeremy Waldron for a discussion of the legal concept of dignity, it origins in law and morality and its emergence as a foundation for human rights. In the conversation, Professor Waldron also talks about the importance of preserving liberal values in the fight against terrorism, and, in this context, he criticizes the torture memos for their assault on human dignity.
