Annemarie Devereux is an international and public lawyer with particular expertise in the fields of international law, constitutional law and human rights. Her particular familiarity with Timor-Leste comes from her work as a legal adviser with the human rights component of three peacekeeping missions in Timor-Leste, working on rule of law issues. This included observing and assisting the constitutional process of 2001–2002. She has also worked with the United Nations in other contexts (including with the Security Council’s CTED, OHCHR, and a variety of International Commissions of Inquiry), as well as with the Australian Government’s Attorney-General’s Department. Alongside her legal practice, she has continued to research and teach in the areas of international law and public law.
