Senior Research Fellow, Institute for Social Justice, Australian Catholic University

I am a human rights scholar, lawyer and advocate. I have done research and human rights work in a number of post-conflict countries: Nepal, Sri Lanka, Sierra Leone and Kosovo and am the author of the book, 'The Socio-Political Practice of Human Rights' (Routledge). I have also taught human rights and socio-legal studies at the University of Sydney, worked in the International Secretariat of Amnesty International and practised as a litigation lawyer specialising in immigration law in Sydney.
