Submission to Australian Law Reform Commission's Review of Sedition Laws (and brief response to their Discussion Paper 71 on that topic)

Pyke, John R. (2006) Submission to Australian Law Reform Commission's Review of Sedition Laws (and brief response to their Discussion Paper 71 on that topic). (Unpublished)

Abstract

In this submission, I argued that the proposed new sections of the Criminal Code (Cth) were not wholly unreasonable, but that the existing section 80.1 as to treason, and the existing provisions of the Crimes Act 1914 Part IIA as to unlawful organisations were drawn so broadly as to be an infringement of the right of freedom of speech.

My brief response to the Commission's "Discussion Paper" (really a draft report) No 71 is appended to the original submission.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
