Event description

Description

Former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) Gillian Triggs will examine the state of play of human rights in Australia and revisit the case for an Australian Bill of Rights.

Gillian was the driving force behind the AHRC’s inquiry into children in immigration detention, and during her tenure as AHRC President, she witnessed major challenges to the protection of human rights in Australia. She is also an expert in international law and a passionate advocate for the rights of asylum seekers and indigenous Australians.

Register now for this rare opportunity to hear one of Australia’s leading human rights experts set out what must be done to strengthen human rights protections in Australia.

This is a free event as part of the Amnesty - ANU Law 2018 Speaker Series.



ANU Law Reform and Social Justice is an initiative of the ANU College of Law. In our teaching, research and community engagement, we explore law’s complex role in society, and the part that lawyers play in using and improving law to promote both social justice and social stability. Our dedicated student volunteers run projects that assist community legal centres, schools and the general community to gain better understanding and access to law and justice.
