Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review

Abstract

The Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 (Vic) was intended to create an inter-institutional dialogue about rights. This chapter outlines the Charter’s dialogue mechanisms, and assesses the dialogue in practice. The assessment focuses on examples of institutional dialogue that have involved judicial decisions about rights or with rights implications, and executive and parliamentary reactions thereto. This chapter concludes with reform suggestions for the Charter, which can inform debates across Australian jurisdictions.
