Analysing the state of global health governance and its application in crisis
Our research focuses on the challenges, initiatives and agency that have evolved to confront health issues threatening individual security, state stability, and exacerbate global inequalities. From the evolution of health diplomacy to the presumptive efficacy of health security, this program seeks to build evidence-based research evaluating the effective intersection of health with global governance.
- Preparedness and risk communication - infectious disease outbreak response
- Health care as a peacekeeping measure - health care delivery in humanitarian emergencies, with a particular focus on peacekeeping operations
- Health and human rights - international human rights law and health care delivery with a particular focus on gendered inequalities of health care and global health governance
- Global health diplomacy – tracing the diplomatic and security affect on global health initiatives
The program examines a range of actors and regions where global health issues continue to pose challenges to equitable economic and political transformation.
Research partners include:
- Gender Peace and Security Initiative, Monash University
- Australian Centre for Health Law Research, QUT
