Felicity Gray joined RegNet in 2017 to examine how nonviolent practices contribute to the protection of civilians in situations of violent conflict. The project explores the possibilities and limitations of alternative forms of nonviolent practice that are being used to protect civilians, with a particular focus on ‘unarmed civilian protection’ methodologies. She has a particular interest in the role this plays in the conflict in South Sudan.
Prior to joining RegNet, Felicity worked as a senior policy and parliamentary adviser to leaders of the Australian Greens, Senators Christine Milne and Richard Di Natale, with a focus on foreign affairs and parliamentary strategy. She has also worked as a research assistant to Professor Richard Eccleston at the University of Tasmania, publishing research focused on international tax transparency policy mechanisms.
Felicity holds a Masters in Participatory Development and Applied Anthropology from the ANU, specialising in humanitarian action. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts (First Class Honours) in history and international relations from the University of Tasmania, for which she received the University Medal.
