Biographical details

Elisa Arcioni joined the University of Sydney Law School in 2012. Prior to that Elisa was a lecturer in law at the University of Wollongong and associate to the Honourable Justice Michael Kirby, High Court of Australia. Elisa works in the field of public law, particularly constitutional identity and constitutional membership. Elisa has completed the first major study of the identity of ‘the people’ under the Australian Constitution. Her current projects include the interaction of two or more constitutional identities (most easily understood through the status of multiple nationality) and an interdisciplinary project extending her earlier work regarding Australian constitutional identity. Elisa is currently a member of the Council of the Australian Association of Constitutional Law.
