Equality Guarantees and Distributive Inequity

Macquarie Law School


Public Law Review, Vol. 19, pp. 32-51, 2008

Abstract:     
Australian bills of rights are confined to the protection of civil and political rights. Economic, social and cultural rights were deliberately excluded from their coverage. This article draws on United Kingdom, Canadian and South African judgments with the aim of showing that the equality guarantees contained in these instruments can nevertheless be used as a vehicle for socio-economic claims. It further argues that there are sound moral and philosophical reasons that justify this approach.
