Abstract

If the High Court continues to apply a 'German' proportionality standard in the context of the implied freedom of political communication, the obverse of this is likely to be an enhanced role for deference in Australian constitutional law. Furthermore, it would be preferable for such a doctrine to be openly expressed and structured by clearly articulated principles.

Keywords: Constitutional Law, Deference, Proportionality, Implied Freedom of Political Communication
