This book provides a wide-ranging analysis and critique of Australian law firmly rooted in the context of the broader international dimension. Drawing primarily on international law to identify the standards embodied in human rights, the author turns to domestic law to consider how those rights can be implemented, in practice, in Australia's own unique legal system. Many suggestions for changes in the law are made, including adoption of the rule of law as a constitutional implication.
