It is our great pleasure to introduce our new IntLawGrrls contributor Sarah Fulton.
Sarah is the former International Legal Advisor at REDRESS, an international human rights organisation that seeks justice and reparation for victims of torture and related international crimes, where she led its programme to promote international standards on the prohibition of torture and victims’ rights. Sarah now consults for a number of non-government organisations on these issues. She most recently worked with REDRESS in the production of country-specific supplements to the International Protocol on Documentation and Investigation of Sexual Violence in Conflict, authoring a supplement on Myanmar and co-authoring one on Sri Lanka. A qualified barrister (Australia) and solicitor (UK), Sarah has represented clients before domestic mechanisms, regional human rights courts and international bodies, often in partnership with victims’ organisations. She also previously worked with the Dili-based Judicial System Monitoring Program monitoring trials at the Special Panels for Serious Crimes in Timor-Leste. Sarah has an LLM from University College London, where she was a Commonwealth scholar, and has worked and lived in a number of countries across Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
