AACS Submission to Human Rights Framework Inquiry
The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights is conducting an Inquiry:
- to review the scope and effectiveness of Australia's 2010 Human Rights Framework and the National Human Rights Action Plan;
- to consider whether the Framework should be re-established, as well as the components of the Framework, and any improvements that should be made;
- to consider developments since 2010 in Australian human rights laws (both at the Commonwealth and State and Territory levels) and relevant case law; and
- to consider any other relevant matters.
AACS has provided a submission to the Inquiry outlining our serious concerns with the proposed Human Rights Act which fails to comprehensively protect the international human rights of parents and religious schools.
