Subject: Rights & Responsibilities 2014 - Online Survey Ends 31October

Welcome to the online survey for Rights & Responsibilities 2014.

Australia’s Human Rights Commissioner, Tim Wilson, is conducting a
national consultation about how effectively we protect people’s human
rights and freedoms in Australia. The consultation will focus on
building understanding and improved protection of our fundamental human
rights, freedoms and responsibilities.

Past consultations, such as the National Human Rights Consultation under
the previous federal Government, have tended to focus mainly on what
government should do to protect human rights. This consultation aims to
go beyond this objective and identify where there are restrictions on
rights and freedoms that are disproportionate to the harm to be
prevented. Importantly, the consultation seeks to identify where people
are advancing their rights and freedoms through community-based and
voluntary programs.

Discussions will focus on some of the key rights and freedoms that have
traditionally underpinned our liberal democracy in Australia. These include:

1. The right to freedom of opinion and expression.
2. The right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.

3. The right to freedom of association.

4. Property rights.

This survey includes questions about each of these rights, but there is
no need to answer all of them. You can choose to skip particular
sections and comment only on particular rights that you feel are relevant.

For further information about these rights and/or the national
consultation, please see the Discussion Paper.
The survey should take between 15-30 minutes to complete. Please ensure
you complete it by Friday 31 October 2014.

Please note that when making a submission, you are indicating that you
have read and understood the Commission’s Submission Policy which can be
found at

Once again, thank you for your time and feedback.

Cheers & Respect
