Regarding Rights wishes our readers a very happy new year. We are looking forward to this year’s Human Rights Tertiary Teachers’ Workshop, which will be hosted by the Australian Human Rights Centre at UNSW on Wednesday, 17 February. All those who teach or have an interest in the teaching of human rights are welcome at the workshop – including colleagues from disciplines other than law. CIGJ Director, Hilary Charlesworth is part of the Workshop organizing committee, along with Andrew Byrnes from UNSW’s Australian Human Rights Centre, and John Tobin, who is based in the Faculty of Law at the University of Melbourne.

In our first blog post for 2016 (online this Friday), Yaprak Yildiz, who visited the Centre in 2015, writes about participating in a protest at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy against the forced closure of remote Aboriginal communities in Western Australia.
