TLRI on A Charter of Rights for Tasmania Update

TasCOSS welcomes the review into the need for human rights legislation in Tasmania. Consistent with our previous submissions on this issue we believe there remains a clear need for such legislation.

A well-functioning act has the potential to fill the gaps in our current patchy framework, align our domestic legislation with our international obligations, and provide a catalyst for the promotion of a strong culture of respect for human rights in this state.
