I am the founder, principal lawyer and director of the Australian Centre for International Justice - the only specialist global justice litigation centre in Australia. I love to hear about networks such as this to learn from people abroad, share and think about how to apply creative ideas and actions abroad to our local context here and to benefit the people, communities and survivors that we work with. I'm looking to listen to practitioners, activists, journalists, community advocates about their ideas, lessons and actions!
