Two central issues for democracies are the right to candidate, and suffrage or the franchise—that is, the decision as to who is entitled to vote. Requirements and exclusions such as these, along with racial prohibitions, have been common in democracies. For example, Athenian democracy limited the vote to male citizens, while slaves, foreigners, and women of any status were excluded.

|Human Rights in Australia. Looking Forward, Looking Back Книга по Требованию Anthony G. |
These include the recent laws allowing groups to be outlawed based on a politician' s declaration, laws that limit the right of an accused person to jury trial, both at the national and regional level, laws that restrict voting rights, laws that restrict the ability of a person to work in different regions within Australia, and laws that allow a person to be detained based on an assessment of their future risk to society. Deficiencies in rights protection in Australia are identified and possible solutions suggested. The book discusses theoretical justifications for the power of judges to declare laws inconsistent with human rights to be invalid, including social contract theory and modern versions of democracy. In this context, comtemporary human rights issues are then considered. This book discussses historical aspects of rights protection, including Diceyan concepts of parliamentary supremacy and the rule of law, before considering historical support for limits to the power of Parliament. The current rights debate in Australia is a long-standing one, in the context of one of the few countries without an express bill of rights.
