Anne Orford joined the Law Faculty at the University of Melbourne in 1999. She researches, teaches and supervises doctoral students in the areas of international economic law, international human rights law, postcolonial theory, legal theory, psychoanalysis and law, and feminist theory. She is the author of Reading Humanitarian Intervention: Human Rights and the Use of Force in International Law (Cambridge University Press, 2003). She there provides critical readings of the narratives that accompanied military interventions and shaped legal justifications for the use of force by the international community during the 1990s. While humanitarian intervention seemed to promise a world in which democracy, self-determination and human rights would be privileged over national interests or imperial ambitions, she argues that a far more circumscribed, exploitative and conservative interpretation of the ends of intervention was adopted during this period. The book draws on a wide range of sources, including critical legal theory, feminist and postcolonial theory, psychoanalytic theory and critical geography, to develop ways of reading directed at thinking through the cultural and economic effects of militarised humanitarianism. It concludes by asking what, if anything, has been lost in the move from the era of humanitarian intervention to an international relations dominated by wars on terror. Dr Orford was an Emile Noel Senior Fellow at the Jean Monnet Center, New York University Law School in 2003, and presented her work on globalization and human rights as a lecture series at the Human Rights Session of the Academy of European Law, European University Institute in 1998. She is a member of a research group currently studying the legitimacy of international law and organisations under the auspices of the United Nations University. She is a series editor of the Cavendish International Law Monograph series, which publishes scholarly monographs representing new thinking in international law, and was the guest editor of a special issue of the Nordic Journal of International Law on feminist approaches to international law in 2002. She is a member of the Advisory Board of the Melbourne Journal of International Law, and was an editor of the Australian Feminist Law Journal from 1994 to 1999.
