The Human Rights Act 2019 (Qld) introduced human rights obligations into Queensland that affect all new legislation and require public entities to conduct themselves and make decisions in a way that is compatible with human rights.
This important new text clarifies the scope, content, interpretation and operation of the legislation. The extensive discussion and analysis is informed by the considerable body of international human rights decisions and commentary that has developed under core international human rights treaties such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the European Convention on Human Rights, as well as the domestic jurisprudence and commentary from Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory and comparable countries such as the United Kingdom.
Providing both commentary on the Act and annotations to all key provisions, the text offers first reference guidance to legal practitioners, Members of Parliament, public servants, service providers and other people whose role brings them into contact with Queensland’s Human Rights Act, as well as a broader audience of students, academics and people who are interested in human rights law.
