In this episode of the Beleidsradar, hosted by James Kemp on Pretoria FM, Gerhard van Onselen discusses the law and considers the difficult questions relating to the justness and fairness of laws and regulations themselves.

This lively debate has raged since the days of St Augustine and Thomas of Aquinas. Most of us agree that we are bound to some degree by a duty towards authority, but there are also limits to what the authorities may do with laws.

During the discussion, various components that might be factored into the determination of the justice of laws and regulations are considered.
