Student member Siobhan Airey has been awarded a scholarship to attend the Centre for International Governance and Justice(CIGJ) at the Australian National University in Melbourne late in2015. The Centre is dedicated to the study of theoretical and practical issues in international governance, human rights and social justice. The program encourages visiting PhD scholars to participate actively in the Centre’s research life, and to learn about and engage with research being undertaken towards ‘Strengthening the International Human Rights System’. While at the Centre, Siobhan will research and write on the relationship and interaction between the international legal framework governing human rights and that governing overseas development aid.
This year, Siobhan also received the Nicole Senécal Graduate Scholarship in International Law and a grant from the Juan Celaya Grant on Globalisation and Law from the Oñati International Institute for the Sociology of Law. The funds will be used to support her doctoral field research at the East African Community institution in Arusha Tanzania, and the European Commission in Brussels on the international legal framework governing overseas development aid. Currently Siobhan is already located at theEgmont Institute in Brussels for a research visit. Congratulations, Siobhan!
