The call for a Human Rights Act in Australia

Australia is currently the only Western democracy without a national human rights act. Last week, a parliamentary committee recommended to the Federal Government that this change. It could mark a significant turning point in how rights are recognised and enforced across the nation. On today’s podcast, we sat down with Professor Justine Nolan, Director of the Australian Human Rights Institute and Professor at UNSW, about what this could mean for the country.

Hosts: Sam Koslowski and Billi FitzSimons
