Australia does not have a bill or charter of rights, which means
there is no comprehensive law that enshrines human rights in
Australia – even though these laws are standard in the rest of
the developed world. So what does this mean for the rights of
Australian citizens?

In this fully revised fourth edition of A Charter of Rights for Australia,
George Williams and Daniel Reynolds show that human rights are not
adequately protected in Australia, contrary to what many of us think.
Using some pressing examples, they demonstrate how the rights of
people at the margins of our society are violated in often shocking ways.

Several states and territories have adopted their own charters of rights,
or have a charter well underway. This book’s argument that the time has
come to adopt a charter at the federal level is more urgent than ever.
