Australia is increasingly abrogating its human rights obligations abroad and the fundamental freedoms of its own citizens at home.
Secrecy laws cover the most extreme breaches. Surveillance and self censorship ensure that people who might act as witnesses and whistleblowers do not or cannot speak up.
Organisations that might act as checks and balances are delegitimized by accusations of politicisation, and progressively defunded.
Anyone in Australia seeking to strengthen the defence of those exposed to human rights abuses is severely hampered by the absence of an Australian Bill of Human Rights.
Emeritus Professor Gillian Triggs has been both a champion of human rights and a target of attempts to suppress them.
She is the former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, and for Fabians, needs little other introduction.
Join us for a thought provoking stimulating evening and conversation with like minded people. Book a whole table and bring your friends!
