Teela Reid is a proud Wiradjuri & Wailwan woman, lawyer, and former teacher.
Lee Carnie, Kristen Hilton, Teela Reid and Gillian Triggs at the Wheeler Centre Australia is the only western democracy without a Charter of Human Rights or an equivalent legal protection. What’s holding us back? For this discussion, we brought together three panellists – Kristen Hilton, Teela Reid and Gillian Triggs – to discuss the push for a federal Charter of Human Rights. Hosted by Lee Carnie, they outline glaring problem areas in Australia’s human-rights record and make a case for legally enshrined and protected rights for all Australians. What can we learn from the existing charters in Victoria and ACT? What real-life and practical difference would a Charter of Human Rights make for everyday Australians? And, with successive Australian governments showing a sometimes lax attitude towards our international human rights obligations, what reason is there to believe that things might be different under a charter? Presented in partnership with the Human Rights Law Centre.
