Description

Critical Perspectives on Human Rights Law in Australia provides a comprehensive, accessible and scholarly examination of many of the key human rights issues facing Australia today. Written for human rights and legal scholars, legal practitioners and those readers who wish to increase their understanding of the field, this book provides a timely and intriguing discussion on the law and policy regarding the application of human rights standards in Australia today.

The contributors are many of the nation’s leading and emerging experts in human rights, drawn from both legal and non-legal disciplines, and from varied backgrounds including universities, NGOs and the Australian Human Rights Commission. The authors outline and explore a collection of thought-provoking and controversial topics, presenting clear, articulate and engaging chapters that skilfully highlight both introductory ideas and in-depth critical analysis.

Editorial Reviews

"This book offers a remarkable portrait of the state of human rights protection in Australia towards the end of 2012.  It reveals a country that enjoys many important attributes of basic human rights, but a land that is seriously ambivalent about the desirable means of securing such rights. This book will contribute to advancing the dialogue and encouraging greater enlightenment about the protection of human rights." - The Hon. Michael Kirby AC CMG

 "This book is just what we need; an insightful analysis of the current state of human rights law in Australia, along with guidance about how we can improve the protection and  promotion of human rights in this country." - Professor Gillian Triggs, President, Australian Human Rights Commission

"This is a timely and important book for all Australians, but it should be compulsory reading for all Australian parliamentarians” - Julian Burnside
