Justice and Social Responsibility

The term social justice and responsibility is said to be a "Utopian" concept and impossible to achieve. Does this mean that the individuals in society should not try to achieve it? If Australia sought to bridge the gap between the have and the have nots, then Australian society would enjoy a more cohesive and productive society. A characteristic of an advanced society is one in which all people are afforded the same access to the legal system and equality. A socially just society is one that is effective and caring. This programme features interviews with Tim Costello and Julian Burnside, as well as Christine King from Reconciliation Australia and Karam Abduladeem, a former refugee held in mandatory detention.
