Adjunct Professor in Law, The University of Western Australia

I research in international law. Most of my work focuses on human rights, non-state actors and international organisations (including the European Union). My main current research relates to sustainability of transnational business, particularly with reference to the work of the OECD on responsible business. I am also working on research concerning rights of the child and modern slavery/human trafficking.
