            Human Rights and Civil Liberties (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            Protecting and promoting human rights, including civil liberties, is about making sure that basic safeguards for equality and fairness are in place so that we can prevent the violation of rights, and provide remedies when a violation does occur. Following a recent national consul...tation over a charter or bill of rights aimed at dealing with some controversial issues and emerging human rights principles, the Federal Government has decided it will not be introducing a Human Rights Act in Australia, but rather a new human rights framework. Protecting and promoting human rights requires balancing the interests of individuals and groups with the interests of society including security, public health and public order. This book examines Australia's human rights record and a range of opinions in the debate over adequate and appropriate human rights protection. Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.

            Buying Back the Land: Organisational Struggle and the Aboriginal Land Fund Commission (EPUB ebook)

            The title of this book has two meanings: first, this publication is an act of bringing to light a history that was gradually becoming mythologised, because the ethnographic films of the past are now rarely seen, and secondly, much of the filmmaking discussed was the result of pre...senting Indigenous socio-cultural life on film.

            Indigenous Rights (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            There is still much to be done to close the gap between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and the rest of the population in terms of social and economic development, culture, land, education, health, justice and human rights. This book looks at the progress of key rights iss...ues confronting Australia's indigenous peoples, including historical civil rights milestones; land rights and native title; Reconciliation and the apology to the Stolen Generations; indigenous governance and self-determination; and constitutional recognition. Indigenous Rights also examines the government policy aimed at closing the gap in health and life expectancy, and human rights concerns over the ongoing federal intervention in Northern Territory communities. How should this nation right the wrongs visited upon the first Australians? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.

            Privacy and Information Rights (PDF ebook)

            Edited by Healey, Justin

            We live in a public age in which the free flow of personal information is increasingly exposed to serious invasions of privacy. Privacy protection is a growing concern in relation to how people use rapidly advancing technology to store and share their personal information with fa...mily, friends, organisations and governments. Many Australians' daily interactions are conveyed by social networking websites and mobile phones, and can involve sharing personal and financial data online, often under the watchful eye of CCTV surveillance - but are our privacy laws and protections keeping pace with technological change? Although people are able to complain about the misuse of their personal information to a national information commissioner, Australian laws do not clearly allow a person to take action against a person or entity that seriously violates their privacy. In light of the British media's recent phone hacking scandal, should people's right to privacy be at the expense of freedom of expression and the freedom of the media to seek out and disseminate information of public interest? Can a balance between these principles be struck? Is anything really private anymore? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.
