This volume considers the application of human rights in six specific Australian aEURO closed environmentsaEURO aEURO" prisons; police cells; forensic psychiatric institutions; closed mental health units; closed disability units; and immigration detention centres.

It also draws comparisons between the same closed environments in different jurisdictions, examining the aEURO value addaEURO of formal rights instruments.
