are the rights of Australian Children?
we be proud of their health and wellbeing?
The Rights of the Child forum will explore inter-generational
justice in three different contexts. The health of Australian children
today will be explored with a view to maximizing their life chances
tomorrow. The culture and conditions in which indigenous children find
themselves will be addressed so that we might better understand what
needs to be done now to ensure that their present disadvantage is not
perpetuated in the future. International law with respect to
inter-generational justice and children’s rights will be
considered to determine what more might be done in Australia to ensure
that these rights are better protected as society moves forward.
