DEMOCRACY

Laurie Taylor talks to one of the world’s most eminent legal and political philosophers, Ronald Dworkin. Professor Dworkin discusses his concerns on the current state of democracy, liberty and human rights. What role does dignity play in politics? What are the core values that all citizens share?

Francesca Klug, Professorial Research Fellow, Centre for the Study of Human Rights and Julian Le Grand, Richard Titmuss Professor of Social Policy, London School of Economics and Political Science add their thoughts to the debate.
