AUSTRALIA: SUBMISSION TO THE UN COMMITTEE ON ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL RIGHTS

Amnesty International submits this document to the United Nations Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in advance of the adoption of the List of Issues for Australia’s fifth periodic report under the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in October 2016. This submission contains up-to-date information, current at August 2016, and focuses on the economic, social and cultural rights in Australian law, the Australian Human Rights Commission, the rights of Indigenous Peoples and the rights of asylum seekers. It is not an exhaustive analysis of Australia’s compliance with its obligations under the Covenant.
