Michael Kirby Centre for Public Health and Human Rights Launch
The Michael Kirby Centre for Public Health and Human Rights was launched last week. It is a collaboration of interdisciplinary scholars in the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Monash University. The Centre is named for Australia’s longest serving Justice of the High Court who is a renowned human rights expert, advocate and defender. He will maintain an active involvement in the Centre’s work and future direction. One of the first projects of the centre is research on the impact of law and regulation on female sex workers in 20 countries.
