Inquiry into the human rights of women and girls in the Pacific

The submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade – Human Rights Sub-Committee in relation to its inquiry into the human rights of women and girls in the Pacific was prepared by the Law Council of Australia. 

This submission focuses on the first term of reference (i.e. the role of civil society groups in advancing the human rights of women and girls in the Pacific and gender equality). It also considers the impacts of COVID-19 on gender equality and the human rights of women and girls in the Pacific under the fifth term of reference.

The Law Council does not express a view on the contributions of specific figures and groups advancing the human rights of women and girls in the Pacific context, their engagement with Australia’s Pacific Step-Up, nor the effectiveness of Australia’s overseas development assistance programs. This submission does make general comments about activities and initiatives that ought to be supported within Australia’s aid spending in the Pacific.
