Featuring: Justice Edwin Cameron
Stellenbosch & South Africa: Opportunities and Challenges.
|Description: ||Justice Cameron will talk about the Zondo Commission, former President Zuma's conviction, and how a culture of the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary underpins the democratic foundations of the nation. Further, Justice Cameron will question the application of ethics and compliance with rules within the business community in South Africa today.
Arguing that education is key to building the foundations of strong, well-led institutions, he will explore the idea that we have an ethical commitment to the youth in South Africa, and that Universities and industry together have an obligation to ensure that skills levels in the country rise, that moral and active citizenship are values that we impart to the youth, and that we work to attain social justice.
In conversation, we’ll cover some of the many human rights issues that the recently retired Judge has dealt with throughout his long and interesting career, ranging from HIV and sexual orientation to treason cases. We will learn about his journey out of the poverty of an orphanage in Queenstown, to Pretoria Boys, to Stellenbosch University, to Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar, and through the courts to eventually become a Judge in the Constitutional Court.
In January 2012, at the invitation of the Law Commission of England and Wales, South African Constitutional Court Justice Edwin Cameron delivered The Fourth Leslie Scarman Lecture on the topic “What you can do with rights”.
