This book provides clear perspectives on debates about whether Australia should adopt a national bill or charter of rights. It details the background and history of human rights and the influence of these ideas in Australian politics. It differs from other books on the market in that it focuses on the history and impact of legislative bills of rights in the ACT and Victoria and the lessons to be learned for the national debate. It is timely as the states and territories start to introduce Bills of Rights. Legislation introduced the ACT and Victoria and consultation is under way in Tasmania and Western Australia. It is aimed at a broad audience, including non-lawyers.The authors have a unique mix of academic and practical experience. Hilary Charlesworth chaired the ACT Bill of Rights Consultative Committee whose inquiry and report was instrumental in the development of the ACT Human Rights Act. Andrew Byrnes is a leading expert on the Hong Kong Bill of Rights, and was involved in the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (2008). Gabrielle McKinnon has a strong background in children's law and human rights.We accept the universal right to live in freedom and without oppression, but are our human rights adequately protected by Australian law? Arguments about the need for a bill of rights in Australia have simmered for fifty years. While attempts to introduce a national bill of rights have failed, recently the states and territories have taken on a pioneering role with statutory bills. "Bills of Rights in Australia", written by the leading experts in the field, examines the arguments for and against greater protection of human rights. Original and timely, it examines the emerging evidence of the impact of these uniquely Australian bills of rights.
