The Treaties Committee is empowered by its resolution of appointment to inquire into and report on 'matters arising from treaties and related National Interest Analysis and proposed treaty actions presented or deemed to be presented to the Parliament.'
As nearly all treaty actions proposed by the Australian Government are tabled in Parliament, this type of review activity accounts for much of the Committee's work.
The Committee invites interested persons and organisations to make submissions by 16 November 2017.
Submissions for this inquiry can be lodged online via the link on this page. For information on how to make a submission, go to our Making a submission to a Parliamentary Inquiry page.
Report 177 was presented on 15 February 2018. Additional information on extraterritorial jurisdiction was presented on 28 June 2018 and the Chair made a statement.
