Course Information

Democracy can be a fragile thing. Are your rights under threat? This course looks at the potential threats to our way of life. These can come from organised crime and the way vested interests and money can change our laws and way of life.

In this course, students will examine what their rights actually are. Does Australia follow the Convention on the Rights of a Child? Have we eliminated all forms of discrimination?
