2015 Report on the operation of the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities – Aug 2016

The Commission’s 2015 report on the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities identifies a critical need for greater investment in human rights education and the development of a stronger human rights culture across government.

The report incorporates information received from consultations with state government departments and agencies, local governments, community organisations, courts and tribunals, and highlights some great examples of human rights leadership, particularly in advancing gender equality.

It shows that protecting human rights not only leads to better outcomes for individuals, it strengthens the Victorian community for everyone.

The Commission would like to thank everyone who contributed to this report. We value your ongoing participation in the reporting process and look forward to working with you to build a community where every person values, understands and respects human rights and equal opportunity
