International human rights law and the recognition of Aboriginal customary law

5 May 2005
Description

In this paper for the for Western Australian Law Reform Commission inquiry into Aboriginal customary law, Megan Davis and Hannah McGlade examine the Australian government's reluctance to recognise Aboriginal law and the potential benefit of Aboriginal law to marginalised Aboriginal communities. They look at international human rights law, and the intersection of Aboriginal law with the Australian legal system and Australia's international obligations to protect the human rights of individuals balanced with the obligation to protect Aboriginal culture.
