A three-year full-time PhD scholarship within the Centre for International Governance and Justice, located in the Regulatory Institutions Network (RegNet) at the ANU. The Centre for International Governance and Justice (CIGJ) undertakes research into theoretical and practical issues in international governance, human rights and social justice. It was established in 2005, initially funded by Hilary Charlesworth’s Australian Research Council (ARC) Federation Fellowship on ‘Building Democracy and Justice after Conflict’ (2005-2010).
The Centre draws together a range of research projects in the fields of peacebuilding, international law and human rights. Apart from the Federation Fellowship project, it has encompassed ARC-funded research including ‘Peacebuilding Compared’, ‘Australia’s First Bill of Rights’, and ‘Economic, Social and Cultural Rights in the ACT: Models, Methods, Impact’.
The Centre is now home to Hilary Charlesworth’s ARC Laureate Fellowship project ‘Strengthening the International Human Rights System: Rights, Regulation and Ritualism’, as well as ‘Peacebuilding Compared’, led by John Braithwaite, ‘The UN Security Council and the Rule of Law’, led by Jeremy Farrall and Hilary Charlesworth, and many other projects.
Many RegNet PhD students, academics and visitors have participated in the intellectual life of the Centre and have expanded its horizons to include research on topics such as transitional justice, human rights advocacy, policing in Timor-Leste, corporate social responsibility, peacekeeping sex, the literature of human rights, national human rights institutions, refugee issues and the new UN women’s architecture.
