A Model for Positive Human Rights Reform

A Model for Positive Human Rights Reform

This discussion paper by the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) outlines what our current system of human rights protections looks like, how it is and isn’t effective in ensuring that government respects, protects and fulfils our human rights, why reforming the current system is critical, and options for reform.

The case studies throughout show how more fair and equal outcomes can be reached when human rights are protected by law, or instances where there are currently gaps in protection. It provides a basis for members of the public, business sector, NGOs, the legal community and others to submit their views on the proposals contained in this paper, or on other ways to better protect human rights in Australia.
