    Abstract

    When I was preparing this lecture, I found, on the Internet, that there has already been an inaugural lecture on the topic of human rights and social justice. It was given in October 2001 at the University of Newcastle, Australia, by Rick Farley. Did that mean that my work was already done? Fortunately not. Indeed, Rick Farley's lecture complements mine in an interesting way. His themes were Australia's reconciliation with its indigenous peoples, and its treatment of asylum seekers, and his own 'tremendous disquiet'. His conclusion was that: 'Globalisation, which opens new markets for our exports, will fail without social justice and protection of human rights'. I return to globalisation in my final section.
