Philosopher Suzy Killmister (Monash University) joins The Badlands to discuss the philosophical foundations of human rights. She argues that we have human rights not because of some inherent feature of human beings, but because of a special social status we now have as members of the human kind. She defends the idea that human rights are deeply morally important, even though they are, ultimately, social constructs.
