Keynote Speaker: Ms Erika Feller
From 2005 to April 2013 Ms Feller held the post of Assistant High Commissioner (Protection) at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. This was the culmination of a 26 year long career with UNHCR, and had been preceded by 14 years’ service as an Australian diplomat, in Canberra and overseas. For UNHCR, Ms Feller served both in Geneva and in the field, notably as the High Commissioner’s Representative for Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei. She was the initiator and manager of the 2001-2 Global Consultations on International Protection, which generated the Agenda for Protection, the internationally endorsed global ‘road map’ on protection policy for refugees. She is broadly respected as a refugee law advocate who has been widely published. On her return to Australia in 2013, she was made a Fellow of the Australian Institute of International Affairs. In July 2014, she took up an appointment as Vice Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Melbourne. She recently received the University of Melbourne 2015 Arts Alumni Award for Leadership. She holds a Bachelor of Arts, with Honours in Psychology, and Bachelor of Laws with honours from the University of Melbourne.
