Rate this:
Protecting and promoting human rights, including civil liberties, is about making sure that basic safeguards for equality and fairness are in place so that we can prevent the violation of rights, and provide remedies when a violation does occur. Following a recent national consultation over a charter or bill of rights aimed at dealing with some controversial issues and emerging human rights principles, the Federal Government has decided it will not be introducing a Human Rights Act in Australia, but rather a new human rights framework. Protecting and promoting human rights requires balancing the interests of individuals and groups with the interests of society including security, public health and public order. This book examines Australia's human rights record and a range of opinions in the debate over human rights protection.
