Evaluating the effectiveness of the new mechanisms in the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic)

Project: Research

Project Description

The Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic) is the most modern anti-discrimination law in Australia and contains many innovative mechanisms. This project will evaluate the effectiveness of those mechanisms in addressing the problems with the predecessor Act that the Investigator identified in earlier research and assess the extent to which problems that were not addressed by the 2010 reforms remain. This will be achieved through a combination of case analysis and empirical expert interview data. The project will develop recommendations for increasing the Act’s ability to tackle discrimination.
