Indigenous Human Rights Network Australia

The Indigenous Human Rights Network Australia (IHRNA) is a network of Australian individuals who advocate for and promote the awareness of Indigenous human rights in Australia.

Along with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, there are a number of International treaties and declarations and mechanisms under which Indigenous human rights are protected.

IHRNA facilitates access to information, expert advice, mentors and the sharing of best practice solutions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from a human rights approach.

Hosted by the Australian Human Rights Commission, funded by Oxfam Australia and supported by the Diplomacy Training Program (DTP) at the University of New South Wales, IHRNA developed out of research undertaken in 2007 which revealed support for the establishment of a network that would allow human rights advocates access to information to strengthen Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' participation and engagement in human rights processes.
