Professor Gillian Triggs to present the Inaugural Annual Curtin University Human Rights Public Lecture

Professor Gillian Triggs, President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, will be presenting a public lecture on Thursday, 12 May, as part of a new initiative of Curtin University’s Centre for Human Rights Education (CHRE).

From the event page:

Professor Triggs will examine the current state of play of human rights in Australia. Australia enjoys limited constitutional or legislative protections of fundamental rights and freedoms, instead adopting a multi-faceted approach to human rights protection. In this state of play, education has a key role to play in a reimagining of an Australia where human rights are fully realised and enjoyed by all. It is an indispensable means of realising other human rights.
