By promoting and nurturing multiculturalism within Australia, we can build a more dynamic, more inclusive society that fosters the health and prosperity of all its citizens. By sharing and respecting our histories and our dreams, we gain a greater understanding of the human race, and develop stronger relationships with many other people, which will only aid in breaking through the barriers between the thousands of different cultures present in the Australian society, the Australian society to which we are all proud to belong. Think about this.....without cultural diversity, where would Australia be? What would our nation be like? I don 't think that any one can answer these questions.
Plays on an event that would lead to once again, a reduction of state powers. Robert Yates contends that “whatever government we adopt, it ought to be a free one; that it should be so framed as to secure the liberty of the citizens of America, and such a one to admit of a full, fair, and equal representation of the people.” This helped to add the Bill of Rights to the Constitution. The amendments would put the anti-federalist at ease. It would ensure that the government would not be able to restrict the people.
Constitutional review is vital. It is the power of an establishment to nullify legislation, government decisions, and other acts of the command that violate constitutional rules, such as rights. It has been created in order to defend the omnipotence of the constitution and the rights contained within. Since Entdeckungland now will focus on the rights of the people and become a minimalist democracy, the promises for human rights to the people must be upheld, thereby possessing the need for this type of review. The new nation will follow the American Model of constitutional review, suggesting that any law can be declared unconstitutional by any judge at any time.
The constitution defines the president as the head of the executive branch of government, with a number of different powers arising from that position. President has certain power in sphere of legislation. Much of the original power vested in congress is now exercised by executive agencies, independent committees and the courts. The president has power to veto legislation, returning it to the chamber in which it originated. This can only be overturned by a two third majority of both chambers of congress.
The Progressive era became an iconic time that would not exist if the U.S. was not a democracy. Individuals became empowered to change after seeing all the problems that industrialization created. Progressive era reformers in the late 19th to the early 20th century believed in constructing a new order to improve American welfare. During the progressive movement many progressives such as Robert F. La Follete and Jane Addams sought to generate reform for fairness and to enhance moral values. As a civic duty, progressives such as W.E.B Du Bois fought against the racial injustice in America as well as establish a new order to create a more virtuous society.
In Roach v Electoral Commissioner  HCA 43, Australia’s High Court found that the right to vote lies at the heart of Australia’s system of representative government. The High Court ruled that Australians’ voting rights should not be limited or infringed except where absolutely necessary and then only to the extent that the limitation is proportionate. Australia is party to all the major international human rights treaties and is thereby obliged to protect and promote all human rights under international law, including the right to
America is often coined ‘land of the free, home of the brave’, it resonates feelings of pride and superiority to be free of all forms of oppression and be a nation with strict codes of natural rights. These certain rights become unanimous to being a citizen of a country or even the world, those rights have been developed over time and are pivotal in various forms of cultural framework. Although the United States, and United Nations have developed various rules and regulations to enforce and guide the basic rights of human beings and citizens of particular countries, there are still social divides. The Declaration of Independence and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights became a promise for people, but in Alice Goffman’s On the Run, both documents provide an outline of basic human rights stripped. The accounts on Sixth Street show a violation of human rights through punitive policing, fear of
Nowadays, crime is a term that we come frequently encounter in our daily life, not only as a term but also as an action. Whether it is displayed to us over the news or commented on newspaper or if we are witnesses of crimes they are drastically increasing with each passing day. Nevertheless, there are many forms of crimes that are being committed in the present-day such as: personal crimes, property crimes, inchoate crimes and statuary crimes. However, the question is who gets convicted for committing them and who gets away. Well, the answer to that question is simple- the rich elude from being condemned and the poor face the consequences.
Culture diversity in police is important , in my opinion, as Australia is cultural diverse country. cultural diversity in police would provide people from many different backgrounds with the equal work opportunity to be part Victoria police. It also offers a chance for police members to communicate with wider communities. However, more important than cultural diversity in Victoria police is to have high standard of education and training to tackle diverse problems. Culture diversity in Victoria police provides people with equal work opportunity to be a member of Victoria police, and to not left out just because a person has different cultural background.
Universal Human Rights mean the rights which are equally acceptable in all the socities when The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is the unique and an important document which is translated into different languages all over world. It is based upon idea of promoting freedom, justice and peace and it provides a set of uniform standards that were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly with the support of forty-eight countries. This doctrine consists of universal international values, but indigenous societies are not in favour of universal implementation of this kind of law because it interferes with the social fabric of the society which in turn consists of the traditional beliefs, values and norms. These beliefs, norms and
For example, they stress on the fact that seeking asylum is not illegal, but a basic human right that has been outlined by the United Nations. They aim to end offshore processing at facilities like Christmas Island and Nauru as well as ending the indefinite mandatory detention for asylum seekers and instead opt to place them into communities once their initial checks and screenings have been completed. They are also trying to ensure that Australia’s refugee status determination system is fair and is strong. An international inter-governmental body that is prominent is the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
Both Australia and the United States have experienced difficulties relating to racial equality over the years. While both countries have demonstrated a commitment to addressing these racial equality issues, Australia’s commitment has been stronger. This is proved by Australia’s Racial Discrimination Act of 1975, which prohibits “any act involving a distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, colour, descent or national or ethnical origin which has the purpose of effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of any human right or fundamental freedom”. Whenever a large event is held in Australia, there is someone acknowledging the traditional owners of the land that they are
Much has been written about the importance of the Bill of Rights, the amendments recognizes individual liberty rights by the government, enforcing them amongst all citizens, including Native Americans. The trust responsibilities between Indian tribes and the United States has been an ongoing struggle of rights, tribal sovereignty, and relations with Congress. For example, the Santa Clara Pueblo v. Martinez, a United States Supreme Court decision, is a landmark in federal Indian Law that doesn’t enforce the fifth amendment of the Bill of Rights. However, the government’s security is taking action for its well-being in protecting its sacred history that the Founders established.
Legal Studies How well does the Australian Legal System deal with the contemporary issue (drug use and the law) The Australian legal system was developed from the legal system of Britain originally, between 1855 and 1890 the British parliament granted a limited right to set up a local system of governments to each of the British colonies within Australia. This allowed each of the colonies the right to develop their own laws and legal systems to deal with its particular situation. There was a move towards creating a central legal system during the late 19th century, a referendum was held in each colony to approve the draft constitution. The Australian Constitution Act was passed as an Act of the British Government and took effect on January
U.S. development gave more chances to numerous individuals who wanted to make a difference in their lives. Many groups across the world traveled to America, and helped build up what many people in the U.S. see today. Two certain groups that will be discussed all through this paper are individuals from Mexico and the Scotch-Irish. Each of the inspiring groups has motives to leave their country for changes that could affect how they live forever. Different points will also be talked about between the two incoming immigrant states as they experience many obstacles coming and being in America.
