Australia at the Human Rights Council
Ready for A Leadership Role?Book - 2015
Australia is a candidate for membership of the United Nations Human Rights Council for the 2018-2020 term. This report considers Australia's readiness to operate effectively if it is elected. Australia needs to improve its record in three areas: it should take a stronger leadership role on country-specfic human rights violations, particularly in Asia-Pacific states; it should respond more constructively to international concerns about some of its own domestic policies and practices, bringing them into line with international human rights standards; and it should engage more closely with global civil society organisations that help bring issues to the attention of the council.
