Jaz Dawson
PhD candidate
Queer/Refugee Law/International Relations
Melbourne Social Equity Institute, University of Melbourne

Jaz’s research looks at the implementation of procedural protection norms in sexual orientation based refugee claims in Australia and the United Kingdom. Broadly, her research also engages with queering constructivist international relations theory, norm implementation, and identity-based approaches to human rights and law. On the side, Jaz is also a director of Kaleidoscope Human Rights Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation based in Melbourne, Australia that seeks to promote LGBTI human rights in Asia and the Pacific.
