International Justice and Human Rights examines the nature of human rights and the enshrining of those rights in law, both domestically and internationally. You will be introduced to the sources of human rights in Australia and examine those derived from the Commonwealth Constitution, enunciated in case law and articulated in international declarations and covenants. A number of selected topics provide scope for detailed investigation and raise issues associated with anti-discrimination legislation; those of migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers in a contemporary context and Australia's counter terrorism laws.
