Daniel Ghezelbash


Daniel Ghezelbash is an internationally renowned refugee law scholar, advocate and lawyer. He is an Associate Professor and Deputy Director of the Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law. His research transcends traditional disciplinary barriers, drawing on everything from law, computing, political science, behavioural psychology and data science. His book, Refuge Lost: Asylum Law in an Interdependent World (Cambridge University Press, 2018) examines how restrictive asylum policies have spread around the world. His more recent work has focused on improving the fairness and efficiency of asylum procedures, and more broadly, how technology and data can be used to increase access to justice and counteract bias and discrimination in the legal system. He is Special Counsel at the National Justice Project, and sits on the boards of a number of not-for-profit legal centres, including Refugee Advice and Casework Services and Wallumatta Legal. Daniel regularly features and published in domestic and international media outlets on refugee and migration issues.
