National Human Rights Consultation: Submission on a Human Rights Act for All Australians (May 2009)

On 15 May 2009, the Human Rights Law Resource Centre made a submission to the National Human Rights Consultation entitled, A Human Rights Act for All Australians.  The submission calls for the enactment of a comprehensive Human Rights Act to enhance our democracy and protect fundamental values such as freedom, respect, dignity and a fair go. The Centre has also made a separate submission to the Consultation, entitled Engage, Educate, Empower, which considers a range of measures and initiatives to strengthen and complement the protection that would be afforded by a Human Rights Act.
