Abstract In this chapter, we explore ideas of human rights and environmental justice in Australian cities. We draw on three intersecting discourses of urban justice: entangled, messy more-than-human theory, Indigenous political theories of justice and land rights, and the spatial politics of the right to the city. We bring together these bodies of work to interrogate relationships between people and cities, ‘the environment’ and human rights. We argue that these theories of justice enable us to disrupt the dominant liberal model of human rights, and muddle traditional legal understandings of what and where ‘the environment’ is and how it might be protected or sustained. We argue that meaningful conceptions of urban justice require lived recognition of our entanglements with place, people and the more-than-human. This recognition in turn might open up space for conceptions of urban justice beyond the contained, liberal subject imagined in human rights discourse and the contained, enclosed place imagined in colonial environmental law.

This chapter provides an overview of the relationship between data and fundamental rights at the current point in time, and directions as to where and how this relationship might continue. At the basis of this relationship are the fundamental rights to privacy and free expression; however with the digital society becoming more pervasive, other fundamental rights, including freedom from discrimination and labour rights are now implicated by data. The role of private actors is prominent in discussions on data and fundamental rights given their key role in providing data infrastructure and services, in ways which may infringe users’ fundamental rights. In addition, fundamental rights organisations themselves are turning to the collection and use of data to assist with their functions. All of these topics will be explained and discussed before concluding with an outline of some possible future developments for data and fundamental rights, including the implementation of new technologies such as robotics and their impact on fundamental rights and the extent to which existing rights are still appropriate for the current and futures scenarios, or whether new kinds of fundamental rights or new kinds of implementations such as the digital constitutional project need to be recognised.
