Elizabeth Murdoch Building G06 University of Melbourne Parkville

Free lecture. No bookings required.

Former president of the Australian Human Rights Commission, Vice Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Melbourne, and President of the Asian Development Bank Administrative Tribunal, Gillian Triggs will discuss the legal right of all Australians to access adequate health services, viewed through the prism of international human rights law and the failure of Australian law to ensure these rights are directly enforceable.

After her tenure with the Human Rights Commission, Gillian joined Justice Connect as Chair, in order to pursue her commitment to ensuring fair access to the justice system for all people, including those experiencing homelessness, elder abuse, family violence, and financial exploitation. She is working with nations in the Asia Pacific region on practical approaches to human rights.

This free public lecture is delivered as part of Global Health & Human Rights, a postgraduate elective, coordinated by the Nossal Institute for Global Health.
