Wendy Lacey

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book examines the extent to which Australian judges may be guided by unincorporated international human rights conventions when exercising discretionary powers, with comparative analyses of UK, Canadian and New Zealand law. The work serves to highlight the scope and legal basis for judges, through application of the common law’s interpretive principles, to increase protection of human rights through reference to and application of unincorporated conventions.
