The Australia Human Rights Commission
The Report examines the key international human rights treaty on children’s rights, the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), and its implementation in Australia. Current statistics are used in the report to show how children are faring in Australia. The Report also refers to the outcomes of my national listening tour, the Big Banter, which concluded on 30 September 2013.
Based on this, the Report outlines five key themes that I have identified for progressing better protection of children’s rights in Australia.
The Report includes six recommendations on actions that should be taken to ensure the enjoyment and exercise of human rights by children in Australia.
