Danielle Ireland-Piper

Associate Professor, ANU National Security College, Bond University

I am Associate Professor at the ANU National Security College and Honorary Adjunct Associate Professor at Bond University, Australia.

I have expertise in National Security Law, Constitutional Law, Human Rights Law, Public International Law (including Space Law), and Transnational Criminal Law. I have a Master of Laws from the University of Cambridge (Chevening Scholar), and a PhD from the University of Queensland. I was admitted as a Legal Practitioner in the Supreme Court of NSW in 2005.

I am the author of Extraterritoriality in East Asia: Extraterritorial Criminal Jurisdiction in China, Japan, and South Korea (Edward Elgar, 2021), 'Accountability in Extraterritoriality: A Comparative and International Law Perspective' (Edward Elgar, 2017), and co-editor of 'Global Governance and Regulation: Order/Disorder in the 21st Century' (Routledge, 2018). I have published a number of book chapters and articles in peer-reviewed journals.

I previously held policy and legal roles in the private sector and in both state and federal government. For example, I served as Policy Advisor and Parliamentary Liaison Officer in the NSW Office of Premier and Cabinet between 2006 – 2008, and was a Senior Legal Officer in the International Crime Cooperation Division of the Australian Attorney-General’s Department (2008-2010), where I worked on issues relevant to the Asia-Pacific region. I also practiced law, including employment law, and in 2004-2005, worked as a legal officer in the QLD Crime and Misconduct Commission. In 2002-2003, I was Associate to the (now) Hon. Chief Justice Susan Kiefel.
