Dr Ibolya (Ibi) Losoncz is a Fellow at the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet), Australian National University. Her research on the relationship between individuals and institutions examines how policies and institutional processes that are unresponsive to human needs can lead to defiance, rebellion and a breakdown of social bonds between the people and the state.

Ibi published in a range of international journals, including Journal of Refugee Studies, Journal of International Migration and Integration, Social Alternatives, and The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology. Her recent book Institutional Disrespect explores the destructive consequences of democracies relying on institutional processes that are deaf to human needs.

Prior to joining RegNet, Ibi has been a senior research analyst at various public service departments and research institutes, including the Australian Institute of Criminology. Ibi is a Chair of the Board of Companion House: Assisting Survivors of Torture and Trauma.
