Abstract

The Federal Government's National Human Rights Consultation (NHRC) delivered its report on 30 September 2009. The purpose of this article is to offer general comment on the protection of human rights in Australia, using John Rawls's theory of justice as the theoretical basis for the protection of rights, with specific focus on the rights of Indigenous people. Therefore, while the article refers to, and critiques, many of the findings in the NHRC report, its purpose is not to offer a general response to the report, but rather to address the particular question of its approach to the rights of Indigenous people
