Religion and Antidiscrimination Laws in Victoria (Guest: Associate Professor Neil Foster)

Episode 7,  Dec 31, 2021, 03:00 PM

In late 2021, the Victorian Parliament passed new amendments to the State's anti-discrimination laws.  These amendments limit the current exemptions provided to religious groups in a clash of what seem see as religious freedom versus equality.  This episode's guest is University of Newcastle Associate Professor Neil Foster.

Find out more about Neil at his University of Newcastle staff page.  His blog, Law and Religion Australia, is a great way to keep track of current events in the area.
