Submission: Free & Equal – An Australian Conversation on Human Rights

Amnesty International welcomes the opportunity to provide this submission to the Australian Human Rights Commission’s project on ‘Free and Equal: an Australian conversation on human rights’.

We believe that overarching human rights protection – such as a human rights act or charter – is the best way to protect, promote and defend the human rights of all in Australia. This submission recommends a Federal Human Rights Act and improved parliamentary scrutiny of human rights.
