The Fifth Estate: The Freedom Fighter: Tim Wilson

Listen to The Fifth Estate: The Freedom Fighter: Tim Wilson

Tim Wilson, former policy director for the Institute of Public Affairs, has been appointed Australia’s 6th Human Rights Commissioner. A fearless advocate of freedom and tireless critic of government intervention, Wilson’s selection was controversial. His supporters, including Attorney-General George Brandis, believe he will bring balance and brilliance to the role.

What is the purpose of the Human Rights Commission? What are the priorities and plans of the new commissioner? And how will Tim Wilson’s beliefs and ideas on liberty and rights influence his work?

Join host Sally Warhaft and Tim Wilson for the conversation.
