Whose Rights? Strengthening Human Rights for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in the ACT

Publication date: 
November 2011

Human rights are basic rights for people to enjoy and live by. Human rights allow people to vote, have a say in public affairs, move freely, receive healthcare as needed, go to school and go to work.

Unfortunately, for many Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples in the ACT, many human rights are not being realised.

This report seeks to explore the current experience of human rights for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples in the ACT and how human rights can be better promoted and protected.
