We have gathered an exciting group of speakers to discuss the state of human rights in Australia -- from the experience of refugees and asylum seekers, to the effects of the anti-terrorism laws. This promises to be a lively discussion canvassing all the arguments surrounding whether Australia needs a Human Rights Act.
A moderated panel featuring:
- Malcom Fraser (former Prime Minister of Australia)
- Stephen Keim (Barrister for Dr Mohamed Haneef)
- Keith Mason (Former President of the NSW Court of Appeal)
- Andrew Lynch (Director of the Gilbert+Tobin Centre of Public Law)
- Edward Santow (Director of the Charter of Human Rights Project at the Gilbert+Tobin Centre of Public Law, UNSW)
