Kamalesh Adhikari – Panelist – Pandora’s Box Launch Event

October 25 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

JATL is pleased to announce the following panellists for our panel discussion on Monday night. Our discussion will be focusing on each panellist’s experience with changes to the sphere of environmental justice over the course of their careers. Each panellist has contributed an article for the 2021 edition of Pandora’s Box:

  • Dr Kamalesh Adhikari is a Research Fellow with the ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre for Uniquely Australian Foods and a Member of the ARC Laureate Project ‘Harnessing the Potential of Intellectual Property to Build Food Security’ at the TC Beirne School of Law. His current research focusses on socio-legal issues and concerns associated with the collection, use and circulation of native plants and traditional knowledge.
  • Dr Lana Hartwig is a geographer and an Adjunct Research Fellow at the Australian Rivers Institute at Griffith University. Dr Hartwig’s research explores Aboriginal water access and water justice in New South Wales and the Murray-Darling Basin. She has particular research interests in Aboriginal water ownership and participation in water trading, as well as First Nations exercising self-determination within settler-colonial water law and governance frameworks.
  • Dr Jonathan Fulcher is a Partner at HopgoodGanim Lawyers in Resources Energy and Native Title and an Adjunct Professor in the TC Beirne School of Law at UQ. His research interests include constitutional recognition of indigenous people in Australia and treaty processes in Australia and internationally.
  • Councillor Jonathan Sri is the elected representative of Brisbane City Council’s Gabba Ward, representing the suburbs of West End, Highgate Hill, Dutton Park, South Brisbane, Kangaroo Point and Woolloongabba. Councillor Sri has sought to redefine the role of city councillor while broadening the parameters of mainstream policy debate.
