ANITA ANAND: Welcome to the fifth and final BBC Reith Lecture of 2019 with the former Supreme Court Judge, Jonathan Sumption. 

欢迎来到第五次也是2019年最后一次睿思讲座来听前最高法院法官Jonathan Sumption的演讲。

We’re at Cardiff University’s School of Journalism, Media and Culture, housed in a shiny new building which opened only last September, for the last of this series examining the relationship between the law and politics. 

今天,我们在Cardiff大学的新闻媒体和文化学院,坐落在一座去年9月刚刚开放的崭新建筑中,听这个探讨法律与政治关系的系列讲座的最后一次演讲。

So far, Jonathan has questioned what he calls law’s expanding empire and the mission creep of the European Convention of Human Rights. He has discussed how best democracy can accommodate political difference and has warned the UK against going down the American constitutional road. Now, he is going to offer some suggestions to try and re-energise political participation, both in our institutions and political processes. The lecture is called “Shifting the Foundations”.

到目前为止,Jonathan对他称之为法律帝国的扩张和欧洲人权公约的使命扩张进行了质疑,讨论了民主制可以如何容纳政治分歧并警告英国不要走美国的宪政之路。现在他将提出一些建议,以尝试重新激活制度和政治进程中的政治参与。讲座题目是“调整基础”。

Please will you welcome the 2019 BBC Reith Lecturer, Jonathan Sumption.

ANITA ANAND: Welcome to the third of this year’s Reith Lectures with the former Supreme Court Justice Jonathan Sumption. 

欢迎来到今年睿思第三次讲座听前最高法院法官Jonathan Sumption演讲。

We are in Edinburgh’s Parliament House, a building which dates back to the 16th century. This place has long been home to the Court of Sessions, the highest court in Scotland, and here in the great hall we are dominated by a stunning stained glass window depicting the moment King James V confirmed the Court of Sessions right here in 1532. This is a place, therefore, steeped in regal and legal history, an entirely suitable setting for Jonathan Sumption to continue his series of lectures on the role of the law in our public and private life.

今天我们在爱丁堡议会大厦,始建于16世纪,这里长期以来一直是苏格兰最高法院——苏格兰高等民事法院所在地。在大厅里,令人惊叹的彩色玻璃窗俯视着我们,上面是国王詹姆斯五世于1532年在此确认高等法院的画面。因此,这饱含法律和法律历史的地方,非常适合Jonathan Sumption继续他关于法治与生活公私两面的讲座。

So far Jonathan has questioned what he calls “law’s expanding empire” and discussed how best democracy can accommodate political difference. Today he will be taking a look at human rights, in particular the role of the European Convention on Human Rights and the Strasbourg Court. The lecture is called Human Rights and Wrongs. 

迄今为止,Jonathan质疑了他所谓法律帝国的扩张,并讨论了民主应该如何容纳政治差异。今天,他将着眼于人权,特别是欧洲人权公约和斯特拉斯堡法院的角色。讲座的题目是“人权及其滥用”。

ANITA ANAND: Welcome to the second of the 2019 BBC Reith Lectures with the former Supreme Court Judge, Jonathan Sumption. We’re in England’s second city at the University of Birmingham’s Bramall Music Hall, a beautiful modern addition to this famous old red brick campus.

欢迎来到2019年BBC睿思讲座的第二场,由前最高法院法官Jonathan Sumption主讲。今天我们来到英格兰第二大城市伯明翰,伯明翰大学古老的红砖校园新建了一个漂亮的现代建筑,就是我们今天所在的Bramall音乐厅。

Our speaker this year began his series by raising concerns about the law’s growing influence over public life. He suggested that this expansion may not be good for democratic life.  Now, he develops this idea further, turning his attention to some fundamental issues which underpin democracy, how the State acquires and builds legitimacy and, mindful of recent events, how democracy accommodates difference, difference of opinion and experience.  This, he believes, is the job of politicians, not of judges.  

今年的主讲人以对法律在公共生活中的影响力日益增长表示担忧开始了他的系列演讲,他指出这种扩张可能不利于民主。现在,他进一步发展了这个思想,将注意力转向民主的基础问题,国家应如何获取并建设正当性,以及,鉴于正在发生的时事,民主制应该如何容纳不同,意见分歧和经验差异。他相信,这些工作应该交由政治家而不是法官完成。

Will you please welcome the 2019 BBC Lecturer Jonathan Sumption. The lecture is called In Praise of Politics.

请欢迎2019年BBC睿思讲座主讲人Jonathan Sumption。本次讲座的主题为:政治运作的礼赞

Reith Lecturer: Jonathan Sumption

 

Lecture 1: Law’s Expanding Empire

 

ANITA ANAND: Welcome to the 2019 BBC Reith Lectures and to the magnificent Middle Temple Hall in central London. This splendid Elizabethan edifice is the centrepiece of one of four Inns of Court which date back to the 14th century and it has been a home to lawyers for hundreds of years. We could think of no more fitting place for this year’s lecturer to begin his series about the relationship between the law and politics. Right now, with the world looking as it does, could there be a more timely intervention?

欢迎来到2019 BBC睿思讲座,来到位于伦敦市中心的中殿律师学院的宏伟讲堂。这座伊丽莎白风格的辉煌讲堂一直是中殿律师学院的核心。中殿律师学院的历史可以追溯到14世纪,在几百年来一直是律师的家园。本年度的讲座将探讨法律与政治的关系,在这里开始本年度睿思讲座再合适不过了。目前,时局变化如此,讨论这个话题太及时了。

Having spent a career at the Bar, this year’s lecturer has been called a man with a “brain the size of a planet.” Recently retired as one of Britain’s top judges, after sitting in the Supreme Court, he has returned to his primary passion; history. His appropriately forensic accounts of the One Hundred Years War have been widely praised.

本年度的讲师被认为有 “容纳世界大脑”,在度过最高法院的法律生涯,刚刚以英国最高法官身份退休之后,他返回自己的最初的热情:历史。他在“百年战争”一书中恰切的记述受到广泛赞誉。

Over a series of five lectures he will set out a critique of what he regards as law’s expanding empire intruding into every corner of our lives. He will explain why he thinks this is a corroding influence in our democracy and how, and why, we should revive our political system.

在接下来的五次讲座中,他将对他认为的法律的扩张,以及这种扩张对生活各个角落的入侵做出批评。他将阐述为什么这是对民主的腐蚀,为什么我们应该、以及如何恢复我们的政治制度。

Please welcome the BBC 2019 Reith Lecturer Jonathan Sumption.

有请2019年度BBC睿思主讲人Jonathan Sumption。
