This workshop focuses on the nature and significance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the continuing efforts to secure civil rights and freedoms in Australia.

In looking at the contemporary effectiveness of the document, students will look at one of four instances of rights abuses in Australia (teacher choice):

  • LGBTIQ+ rights
  • The rights of Indigenous Australians
  • The rights of people with disabilities
  • The rights of refugees and asylum seekers.
