Miranda Forsyth is a Research Fellow in the Regulatory Institutions Network at the College of Asia and the Pacific at the Australian National University. In February 2011 she commenced a three year ARC Discovery funded project to investigate the impact of intellectual laws on development in Pacific Island countries. Prior to coming to the ANU, Miranda was a senior lecturer in criminal law at the law school of the University of the South Pacific, based in Port Vila, Vanuatu.  The broad focus of Miranda’s research is investigating the possibilities and challenges of the inter-operation of state and non-state justice systems.  She also works on the issue of how best to localize or vernacularize the foreign legal norms and procedures, and adopts a socio-legal approach to regulation.
