Comparative constitutions and rights 406 (6 points)
Leader: Ms Julie Debeljak
Synopsis: Focuses on the human rights and fundamental freedoms of the individual within at least four constitutional systems eg. Australia, the UK, Canada and New Zealand. These systems will provide a broad range of fundamental rights and freedoms. The mechanisms for enforcement of such rights will also be examined. Freedom of expression, right to life, minority rights, and rights of refugees are compared. Comparative and theoretical perspectives are incorporated. The scope, definition and limitations of rights, the utility of entrenching rights and prospects of reform are studied.
Assessment: Optional research paper (2500-3000 words): 50% + Supervised examination: 50% (or 100% if no research paper)
