Dean's success as a participant of an LIEF grant

20 November 2008



The Dean, Professor Gillian Triggs, is a participant on a successful Linkage Infrastructure Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) scheme from the Australian Research Council (ARC). 

The project titled The International & Humanitarian Law Library - A global dimension in Australian legal research infrastructure was awarded $150,000 for 2009.

The project involves participants from the University of Technology, Sydney; The University of New South Wales; the University of Western Sydney; the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade; The Australian National University & The University of Sydney.

Project Summary:

All researchers in international and humanitarian law in Australian Law Schools will use this infrastructure to improve their research.  So will similar researchers from Universities worldwide, enhancing Australia's reputation in this field.  Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and other government agencies involved in international law, co‑operation and trade, will obtain similar benefits from resources not available within government, assisting the Australian Government's moves toward greater involvement in international institutions. Researchers from non-government organisations with international engagements will benefit from free access, as will all Australians who wish to better inform themselves in these fields.
