47/2010 concerning qualification for social security

The author alleged that Australia had violated articles 2, 5 and 6 of the CERD, through the application of social security legislation setting the same qualifying age for all Australians which was alleged to be inequitable on the basis of a lower life expectancy for Indigenous persons. The Committee found the matter inadmissible.
