    Project Details

    Description

    The ACT is about to adopt Australia's first bill of rights, the ACT Human Rights Act. This project will document and analyse the implementation of this historic law through its effect on executive and legislative policy and its interpretation by the judicial system. It will also develop a framework for assessing the regulatory impact of bills of rights generally. The project will generate monitoring information for the Industry Partner, publicly accessible information for researchers and policy makers and contribute to the scholarly debate about the significance of bills of rights.
