Product description

This authoritative work guides the reader through the complex statutory provisions in the Australian human rights Acts, and provides detailed analysis of the key issues. Since Victoria and the ACT have become the first two Australian jurisdictions to introduce human rights Acts, this text is invaluable in helping lawyers, government agencies and all those whose rights are protected to rethink the role of human rights in law and government action.
