Book Review - Equality and Discrimination Law in Australia
Anti-discrimination laws aim to protect people from harm to which they may be subject on the basis of personal attributes such as gender, race, age or disability. With human rights principles as their source, anti-discrimination laws can be seen to have equality as their goal however contested notions of equality make it difficult to determine whether the laws are reaching this objective. Anti-discrimination law occupies a peculiar position at the nexus of public and private law; it encompasses both civil and political rights and obligations between individuals.
