Internment of Australian terrorism suspects and the Australian Constitution

Gray, Anthony (2019) Internment of Australian terrorism suspects and the Australian Constitution. Australian Law Journal, 93 (4). pp. 300-320. ISSN 0004-9611

It argues there would be constitutional difficulties if the power to do so was reposed in the executive government, though the chances of the legislation surviving constitutional scrutiny would improve if the power were to be exercised by a court.
