Podcast: Where Not for Profits Fear to Tread
Tuesday, 12th December 2017 at 8:59 am

A new report commissioned by Pro Bono Australia in partnership with the Human Rights Law Centre, has found that not for profits are on a path of quiet advocacy.

The Civil Voices research shows that to a greater or lesser degree civil society organisations are engaging in various forms of “self silencing” – treading very carefully in their advocacy work, less they risk financial security and political retribution.

In Where Not for Profits Fear to Tread, we unpack the report and look at the current state of not-for-profit advocacy in Australia, and how it compares to a decade ago.

We speak to report author Sarah Maddison about what the report tells us about how charities are feeling at the moment; we talk to Community Council of Australia CEO David Crosbie about whether some of the sector’s fears are being realised; and we talk to the former president of the Human Rights Commission Gillian Triggs about the dangers of silencing the charity sector and what we can do to make sure organisations are not silenced.

Featured in this episode:

  • University of Melbourne Associate Professor Sarah Maddison
  • Community Council of Australia CEO David Crosbie
  • Former president of the Human Rights Commission Emeritus Professor Gillian Triggs

Produced by Wendy Williams and Luke Michael.

This podcast was recorded in November 2017.
