by Dr Emma Larking, Centre for International Governance & Justice, RegNet
Emma is a Research Fellow in the Centre for International Governance and Justice. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow on Professor Hilary Charlesworth’s ARC Laureate Fellowship project, ‘Strengthening the international human rights system: rights, regulation and ritualism’. Her research background is in legal, political, and applied philosophy. Before moving to ANU, she lectured in the University of Melbourne’s Schools of Historical and Philosophical Studies, and of Social and Political Sciences – where she also worked as a senior research assistant on the ARC Discovery Project, ‘The Politics of Rights,’ with Chief Investigators Professor Brian Galligan and Dr John Chesterman. As well as identifying mechanisms to encourage and support genuine rights realisation, her current research explores the limitations of rights language and the implications for social justice and political dissent of the now overwhelming dominance of this language.
