Dr. Jacqueline Dugard, Senior Lecturer in the discipline of Human Rights and Political Science, has been selected to be one of three judges for the 2023 Christopher Moore Foundation prize for human rights writing. The other two juries are Geoffrey Robertson KC, human rights lawyer, author and Founding Head of Doughty Street Chambers, London and Dr. Roja Fazaeli, Professor of Islamic Civilisations, Fellow of Trinity College Dublin.
Christopher G Moore (Prize Founder) says: "This year, the jury members have established human rights careers displaying a wide range of knowledge, experience, and interest. Such a distinguished and capable jury continues the Foundation's commitment to engage global human rights leaders in the judging process."
The Prize has been established to provide funds to authors who, through their work, contribute to the universality of human rights. This unique initiative is awarded annually, as chosen by a panel of judges whose own work focuses on human rights.
