Law, justice & human rights


RegNet is one of world’s leading centres for socio-legal work on Law, justice and human rights. Our work on international law, rule of law, restorative justice and legal pluralism is shaped by interdisciplinary empirical research in Asia and the Pacific and in Australia, contributing new theoretical insights that contribute to better public policy. Our researchers share a concern with social equity and advancing sound policy proposals for socio-legal change. Locally and internationally, RegNet researchers have also led the development of restorative justice as a concept and practice, and contributed significant ideas for reforming policing, security and intelligence practices with a view to enhancing Australia’s wellbeing and promoting justice.
