Senior Lecturer in International Law and Human Rights, University of Newcastle
I am a senior lecturer in international law at the University of Newcastle Law School. Since 2005, I have been engaged in research relating to the collective human right to self-determination, with particular focus on Indigenous peoples in Australia and Irish nationalists in the North of Ireland. My doctoral research explores the self-determination claims of peoples who live a contemporary colonial experience, and I argue that the right of self-determination retains a mission of decolonisation in the twenty-first century.
My other research interests include:
- Human rights and climate change adaptation
- Refugee rights
- Indigenous rights under international and domestic law
- Indigenisation of curriculum
- Domestic implementation of international law
- Peace and conflict studies
