Researcher's projects

As an E.G Whitlam Fellow (2018) at the Whitlam Institute (University of Western Sydney) I will be investigating the relationship between Australia, the United Nations, human rights and international law and the potential lessons which can be drawn for the present.

I am also working on a book publication called 'Blind Spots' (*under contract) examining issues such as nationalism, war, human rights and diplomacy. This will continue the work undertaken as Visiting Fellow in Human Rights (HRC, SAS, University of London) in diplomacy and human rights related to issues connected with East Timor, Indonesia and Australia.
