Human Rights

This ANTAR Submission highlights how a robust national Human Rights Framework would elevate and complement the agency of First Nations peoples across Australia.

Consideration of Australia’s Human Rights Framework is not new and, although focus has drifted over the last decade, it is timely that renewed attention be given to the questions of how Australia implements and upholds its human rights commitments. Australia has a long history of supporting the development of international conventions that articulate and promote human rights, particularly since the end of World War 2 in the 1940s. However, we do not have an adequate domestic regime that ensures human rights are honoured and protected within Australia.
