---------------------------------------------------------------

Former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) Gillian Triggs will examine the state of play of human rights in Australia and revisit the case for an Australian Bill of Rights.

Gillian was the driving force behind the AHRC’s inquiry into children in immigration detention, and during her tenure as AHRC President, she witnessed major challenges to the protection of human rights in Australia. She is also an expert in international law and a passionate advocate for the rights of asylum seekers and indigenous Australians.

Ballrooms 1 and 2
QT Canberra
1 London Circuit
Canberra
(The old Lakeside Hotel/Rydges Hotel)

Parking is available in the Wilson car park on the opposite side of London Circuit

This is a free event as part of the Amnesty - ANU Law 2018 Speaker Series.

In our teaching, research and community engagement, we explore law’s complex role in society, and the part that lawyers play in using and improving law to promote both social justice and social stability. Our dedicated student volunteers run projects that assist community legal centres, schools and the general community to gain better understanding and access to law and justice. https://law.anu.edu.au/lrsj
