Applying Human Rights Legislation in Closed Environments

A Strategic Framework for Managing Compliance

This project is a three-year collaborative national research project examining the implementation of human rights in closed environments. The project will contribute practical strategies for addressing human rights obligations and will stimulate debate on balancing human rights with security and safety considerations.

The project was led by Monash University and jointly funded by:

  • the Australian Research Council, Linkage Project 2008
  • Monash University
  • six Partner Organisations, including key oversight and monitoring agencies for both human rights and closed environments in Victoria, Western Australia and the ACT.
