This briefing highlights Amnesty International’s ongoing concerns in relation to Australia’s implementation of the UN Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (the Convention). In particular the organization is concerned about the treatment and detention of asylum seekers, including heightened risks of refoulement; Indigenous justice, particularly the over-representation of Indigenous people in juvenile and adult prisons; allegations of police use of force; reduced funding for the Australian Human Rights Commission and Australia’s delays in ratifying the Optional Protocol to the Convention.
