Jim Ife (2010) states:
Accepting a framework of rights cannot imply simply a selfish attitude on the part of the
individual, claiming her/his own rights while remaining indifferent to the rights of others.
There is a corresponding obligation on every member of the society to respect and support
other people’s rights” (p. 154).
Conduct a literature review on the need to balance ‘rights’ and ‘obligations’ in contemporary
Australia. Your review should include a discussion of the ‘rights’ and ‘obligations’ of individuals and
governments as key players in the human rights discourse. Drawing on theoretical insights, academic
research and current media reports, the review should evaluate the extent to which these two key
players have been able to balance their ‘rights’ with their ‘obligations’ towards others and society.
For example, religious groups have always asserted the ‘right’ to practice their religious beliefs freely
and without discrimination; however, it has often been argued that religious groups impinge on the
rights of others, even while claiming human rights for themselves. Your literature review should
explore this and other relevant debates around ‘rights’ and ‘obligations’.

Notes for essays:
This essay will incorporate a formal introduction, main points and conclusion; as this is an
essay, the introduction and conclusion, as well as individual paragraphs addressing different
issues should not be flagged with subheadings, but incorporated in the essay. The work must
be fully referenced with in-text citations and a reference list at the end. We recommend you
work with your Academic Writing Guide to ensure that you reference correctly. You will find
a link to this document on the main page of every unit, under the ‘Assessments’ section.
Correct academic writing and referencing are essential tasks that you need to learn.
We recommend around ten references, unless instructed differently by your lecturer/tutor.
Unless specifically instructed otherwise by your lecturer, any paper with less than ten
references may be failed. Essays which include sources that are not properly referenced
according to the HWF Academic Writing Guide 2013 may be penalised
References are assessed for their quality. You should draw on quality academic sources, such
as books, chapters from edited books, journals etc. Your textbook can be used as a reference,
but not the Study Guide and lecturer notes. We want to see evidence that you are capable of
conducting your own research. Also, in order to help markers determine students’
understanding of the work they cite, all in-text references (not just direct quotes) must include
the specific page number/s if shown in the original. Before submitting your assignment,
please review this video by clicking on the following link, on why sources of information
need to be acknowledged: Plagiarism Man (thanks to Swinburne for this video).
You must search for peer-reviewed journal articles, which you can find in the online journal
databases and which can be accessed from the library homepage. Please contact Bernice
Russell, the JNI librarian, at [email protected] if you need a tutorial on how to do research
this way. Wikipedia, online dictionaries and online encyclopedias are acceptable as a starting
point to gain knowledge about a topic, but should not be overused – these should constitute
no more than 10% of your total list of references/sources. Additional information and

literature can be used where these are produced by legitimate sources, such as government
departments, research institutes such as the NHMRC, or international organisations such as
the World Health Organisation (WHO). Legitimate organisations and government
departments produce peer reviewed reports and articles and are therefore very useful and
mostly very current. The content of the following link explains why it is not acceptable to use
non-peer reviewed websites: (thanks to La

Marks will be deducted for failure to adhere to the word count – as a general rule you may go
over or under by 10% than the stated length.
