A University of Sydney student has been recognised as a global leader in law and policy in this year’s Forbes ‘30 Under 30’ list.
Hussain Nadim is a doctoral candidate in the University of Sydney’s Department of Government and International Relations and is the co-ordinator of the South Asia Study Group.
Hussain was recognised by Forbes for his work founding the Peace and Development unit of Pakistan’s Ministry of Planning Development and Reforms.
He has also consulted the military and security agencies of Pakistan on deradicalisation and counter-terrorism issues, and at age 25 he was appointed the Special Assistant to the Federal Minister in the Government of Pakistan.
"Being recognised by Forbes is a humbling experience. Not only that it is a reassurance of the path I have chosen for myself, but more so a commitment to serve the people and society globally," said Hussain.
"To me, getting recognised by Forbes as '30 Under 30' is a gateway to deliver more, and in innovative ways, solutions for the problems that collective human society faces in the form of intolerance, racism, hate and extremism."
The protection of human rights is a basic test of a government's decency, writes Professor Ben Saul.
