520    This book examines the ACT Human Rights Act (2004) and the
       Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act
       (2006). These two statutes are closely modelled on 
       international bills and charters of rights but Australia's
       unique legal framework makes them quite distinct. This 
       book examines how these two "Australian Charters" have 
       operated in their first decade. It explains their 
       strengths and limits, and what lessons they can provide 
       for other Australian jurisdictions.The book comprises two 
       thematic parts. The first half explains the architecture 
       of the two Australian Charters. What makes them distinct? 
       What is their scope? How do they operate? The second half 
       examines how the Australian Charters have been used by 
       particular groups in society, such as prisoners, people 
       with disability and women. Others show how the Charters 
       have affected important social issues, such as freedom of 
       expression and religious observance.The authors are a wide
       range of judges, practitioners and leading scholars. They 
       bring a knowledge of the theory and practice of workings 
       of the Australian Charters that is essential to everyone 
       concerned with our rights.
