From Famine to Food Security: The Role of International Law
Professor Anne Orford has been awarded a prestigious four-year ARC Future Fellowship.
Professor Orford is currently an Australian Research Council Professorial Fellow, the Director of the Institute for International Law and the Humanities and the holder of the Michael D. Kirby Chair of International Law. She researches in the fields of international law, international legal theory, histories of international law and empire, international law and security, international economic law and international human rights law.
