The inquiry examined current anti-vilification laws and the effectiveness of the operation of the Racial and Religious Tolerance Act 2001 (the Act). Amongst other things, the Committee considered:  

  • any evidence of increasing vilification and hate conduct in Victoria 
  • possible extension of protections or expansion of protection to classes of people not currently protected under the existing Act 
  • any work underway to engage with social media and technology companies to protect Victorians from vilification.
