Rights outweigh wrongs: a submission to the inquiry by the Attorney-General’s Department Human Rights Unit on the Amended Religious Freedom Bills Package

    Research output: Book/ReportOther report

    Abstract

    This second submission responds to the amended second draft of the Religious Freedom Bills package 2019. Firstly, the amended package is considered against Australia’s commitment to restrictions on religious freedom in international and domestic laws. Secondly, the amended package is considered against specific sector considerations in research on LGBTIQ+ people. The submission argues that the bills betray Australia's commitments to international human rights treaties, LGBTIQ+ rights provisions, and national constitution and laws. It also points to the ways it will exacerbate existing discrimination, violence and problems for LGBTIQ+ people in particular in healthcare, employment and education.
