In part as a consequence of her experience as President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, Professor Gillian Triggs, the renowned international lawyer and author most recently of Speaking Up, is a passionate advocate for an Australian Human Rights Charter.

This event was moderated by Dr Madelaine Chiam, a scholar from La Trobe University’s Law School and introduced by La Trobe's Vice-Chancellor, Professor John Dewar.
