Abstract

On 13 December 2018, the Prime Minister and the Attorney-General released the Report of the Religious Freedom Review. The Review made several recommendations and concluded that there is an opportunity to further protect and better promote freedom of religion under Australian law and in the community.

In its response, the Australian Government committed to a range of measures to implement the Review's recommendations. These form the basis of the legislative package the government will introduce into Parliament.

The Religious Discrimination Bill will provide comprehensive protection against discrimination on the basis of religious belief or activity in specified areas of public life.
The Religious Discrimination (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2019 will make consequential amendments necessary to implement the Religious Discrimination Bill.
The Human Rights Legislation Amendment (Freedom of Religion) Bill 2019 will amend existing Commonwealth legislation to better protect the right to freedom of religion.
