Justice - a Basic human need? With Tony Taylor.
Justice, fairness, due reward, equity, moral rightness … these concepts are as ancient as the earliest civilisations. Definitions of social justice and injustice vary across cultures and are constantly evolving, but the underlying need for them remains. Undeniably, laws and justice are required in any society to ensure that basic human needs are met, but is justice itself a basic human need? Emeritus Professor Tony Taylor examines this issue.
