Biographical details

Professor David Kinley holds the Chair in Human Rights Law at University of Sydney. He is also an Academic Panel member of Doughty Street Chambers in London, a member of the Australian Council for Human Rights, and was a founding member of Australian Lawyers for Human Rights. He is currently on the Faculty of Oxford/George Washington Universities’ International Human Rights Law Summer School and has previously held teaching positions at Cambridge University, ANU, University of New South Wales, Washington College of Law, American University, and Paris 1 (La Sorbonne). He was also the founding Director of the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law at Monash University (2000-2005). He was a Senior Fulbright Scholar in 2004, based in Washington DC, and the Herbert Smith Visiting Fellow at the Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge in 2008. He has also held visiting positions at the universities of Edinburgh, Geneva, Pretoria, Queen’s University Belfast and the South Pacific (Vanuatu), and has been invited to lecture at leading law schools worldwide, including the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, City University of Hong Kong, Columbia, Copenhagen, Duke, Georgetown, George Washington, Harvard, Hong Kong University, Humboldt, the LSE, the Max Planck Institute, McGill, NYU, New Delhi, Nottingham, Osgoode Hall, Oxford, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute, Sheffield, Stanford, Tilburg, Toronto, Trinity College Dublin, Tulane, Tsinghua, UCLA, Virginia and Yale. He has written and edited eight books and more than 80 articles, book chapters, reports and papers.

He has also worked for 20 years as a consultant and adviser on international and domestic human rights law in (or with agencies from) China, Vietnam, Indonesia, South Africa, Bangladesh, Thailand, Iraq, Nepal, Laos, the Pacific Islands, and Myanmar. He has worked for wide range of international organizations, including the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the World Bank, the European Union, the Ford Foundation, the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, the UNDP, AusAID, the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights, and the Asia Pacific Forum of National Human Rights Institutions, as well as a number of transnational corporations and NGOs. He has also previously worked for three years with the Australian Law Reform Commission and two years with the Australian Human Rights Commission.

His particular expertise is in human rights and the global economy, focusing on the respective roles and responsibilities of corporations and states. He is internationally recognized as a leader in the field, having published widely in the area and been asked to advise the UN, the UK Parliament, the US Congress and the Australian Government on the topic. His most recent publications include the critically acclaimed Civilising Globalisation: Human Rights and the Global Economy (Cambridge University Press, 2009), as well as editor of Corporations and Human Rights (Ashgate, 2009), and The WTO and Human Rights: Interdisciplinary Perspectives (Edward Elgar 2009). Two other jointly edited collections will be published in 2013, entitled: Principled Engagement: Promoting Human Rights in Repressive States (Ashgate), and Human Rights: Old Problems and New Possibilities (Edward Elgar). He is currently (2013) working on two new books – one looking at the intersections between global finance and human rights entitled An Awkward Intimacy: Why Human Rights and Finance must Learn to Love Each Other, and the second, a textbook on economic, social and cultural rights (for Oxford University Press).

David was born and brought up in Belfast, Northern Ireland in the 1960s and 70s, studied in England in the 1980s at the Universities of Sheffield and Cambridge, and, after obtaining his doctorate in constitutional and human rights law from the latter in 1990, he moved to Australia. He now lives in Sydney with his wife and three children.
