Reasonable Limits and Exemptions: Victoria's Human Rights Charter and its Implications for Young People
Bessant, Judith
Youth Studies Australia, v28 n2 p14-22 Jun 2009
Many people had great expectations of the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities when it came into effect in January 2008. However, Judith Bessant asks whether the provision for seeking exemptions from the charter has undermined its capacity to effectively counter age-based discrimination and, paradoxically, permitted practices that clearly breach the basic human rights of young people.
