Human rights in Commonwealth policy development and decision-making
This briefing provides an overview of important human rights issues for Commonwealth policy development and decision-making. It begins by focusing on the recent Human Rights (Parliamentary Scrutiny) Act 2011 (Human Rights Scrutiny Act) but then considers the broader human rights context within which that Act operates, and within which Commonwealth ministers, office holders, public servants and lawyers work.
