This paper will focus specifically on the development of the MSA and the limits of the proposed legislation. The paper will background the civil society push for a range of inclusions that were ultimately abandoned in the Bill, and will consider the potential consequences of the legal framework in terms of making an impact on exploitation in Australia and beyond.
