How does the Australian Human Rights Commission protect and promote human rights?

  1. What is the Commission’s vision and mission?


The Australian Human Rights Commission is Australia’s national human rights institution. We have important responsibilities to promote and protect human rights. This is outlined in our new vision and mission. Click here to see the Commission’s Strategic Plan for 2008-2011.

Our vision:

Human rights: everyone, everywhere, everyday

Our mission:

Leading the promotion and protection of human rights in Australia by:



  • making human rights values part of everyday life and language;

  • empowering all people to understand and exercise their human rights;

  • working with individuals, community, business and government to inspire action;

  • keeping government accountable to national and international human rights standards;

  • securing an Australian Human Rights Act.

We do this by:
