Title: Children's rights in Australia: an introduction for people who came to Australia as refugees (PDF file) (Links to English resource)
Summary: In Australia, all people are entitled to enjoy their human rights. This means that mothers and fathers, children, and all members of the community have the same rights. However, it does not mean that we can insist on our own rights in such a way that it hurts another person, or that we can take away their rights.
