Event description
Practical Human Rights Governance Symposium Series: the Rule of Law and Aboriginal Incarceration

About this event

This year, to acknowledge the UN Human Rights Day in 2020, Curtin Law School seeks to increase awareness and dialogue about Aboriginal justice, imprisonment and human rights. Western Australia has high Aboriginal incarceration rates, possibly the highest of any nation, raising serious issues about justice and the rule of law.

This Curtin Law School Governance Symposium Series event will highlight the critical issues facing Aboriginal people in relation to the criminal justice system and the human rights law reforms urgently needed.

Dean and Head of Curtin Law School, Professor Robert Cunningham, is honoured to be welcoming our keynote speaker, Emeritus Professor Rosalind Croucher AM, President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, who will deliver the keynote address to attendees via video.

Mrs Ingrid Cumming will deliver our Welcome to Country.

Our expert panel includes:

  • Mr Dennis Eggington (CEO, Aboriginal Legal Service of WA)
  • Dr Hannah McGlade (Associate Professor, Curtin Law School)
  • Professor Suvendrini Perera (John Curtin Distinguished Professor and Research Professor of Cultural Studies in the School of Media, Creative Arts and Social Inquiry)
  • Ms Alice Barter (Managing Solicitor of the Civil Law and Human Rights Unit - Aboriginal Legal Service of Western Australia)
  • Ms Chloe Wood (Solicitor of the Civil Law and Human Rights Unit - Aboriginal Legal Service of Western Australia)
  • Dr Jocelyn Jones (Senior Research Fellow and Program Leader, National Drug and Research Institute)
  • Ms Sophie McNeill (Australian Researcher, Human Rights Watch)
  • Ms Katrina Williams (Lecturer & Senior Clinical Supervisor, Curtin Law School)
