Abstract: This thesis aims to show that the realist/idealist dichotomy of describing human rights diplomacy in Australian foreign policy has its limitations, as it does not locate the reasons why certain decisions were made. On the other hand, by employing a a??currents of thoughta?? process of mapping three distinct values flowing from Australian society namely, a??Traditionalisma??, a??Internationalisma?? and a??Seclusionisma??, this study has been able to locate the underlying motivation for intent and actions and at the same time identify supporters and detractors of human rights. Through a qualitative study, this thesis shows that by adding the analytical tool kit of identifying and understanding the three distinct domestic forces, that shape human rights discourse, it provides a superior range of understanding for analysing human rights in Australian foreign policy.
