About The Legal Protection of Rights in Australia
Public law and modern government are increasingly focused on rights. Both are also informed by comparative analysis. At the same time, however, important differences remain between jurisdictions which might at first glance appear broadly comparable. The legal protection granted to human rights in Australia is such an area because Australian law has been greatly influenced by developments in other jurisdictions, particularly those in the common law world, but it also remains under the strong influence of domestic constitutional principles.
