Applying Human Rights Legislation In Closed Environments: A Strategic Framework For Managing Compliance [ 2009 - ]

Provided by   Monash University

Research Project

Brief description Treatment of those deprived of liberty reflects a society s commitment to the universality of human rights. This project examines settings where security and safety of the community and of individuals are traditionally of primary importance, but where the potential risk of human rights abuses is high. Human rights principles are now being embodied in comprehensive domestic obligations in Australia, and this project is a timely examination of the implementation of human rights in closed environments. The project will contribute practical strategies for addressing human rights obligations and will stimulate debate on balancing human rights with security and safety considerations.
