Legislative responsibility for child protection and human rights in Queensland
Farrell, Ann (2001) Legislative responsibility for child protection and human rights in Queensland. Australia and New Zealand Journal of Law and Education, 6(1), pp. 15-24.
Since the emergence of child abuse as a phenomenon of public concern, legislative responsibility for child protection as a human right has become a leading motif within the international human rights discourse and a major policy issue within social institutions such as schools. This paper canvasses significant legislative initiatives in child protection and human rights in Queensland and argues for heightened understanding of the social and political contexts in which child protection responsibilities are enacted.
