Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Government Publishing Service 1989Other title: The Burdekin Report.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Chairman: Brian Burdekin. Commissioners: Jan Carter* and Wally DethlefsSummary: n 1987, after consulting with a wide range of individuals and organisations attempting to assist homeless children, analysing current policy directions and surveying the available literature, the Commission decided that there was a clear need for a national inquiry into homelessness as it affects children and young people. The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights provides that children are to be accorded such measures of protection as are required by their status as minors) The Declaration of the Rights of the Child provides, more specifically, that all children have a right to enjoy special protection, to receive adequate housing, and to be protected against all forms of neglect, cruelty and exploitation.' It was clear to the Commission that a large number of Australian children were being denied these fundamental human rights.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).

PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: The 20th annual Sambell Oration, Wednesday 17 October 2001 at the Shell Conference Centre, Melbourne Summary: 53 years ago this December, a war-ravaged and war-weary world ushered in a new international order with what was called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It was a bold and brilliant document full of words, phrases and concepts that everyone wanted to hear. It spoke of recognising the inherent dignity and the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family as the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. It observed that disregard and contempt for human rights had resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind. It called for the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief, and freedom from fear and want, as the highest aspiration of the common people. It declared as essential that human rights should be protected by the rule of law.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
