Jeremy Farrall is Fellow at the Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy in the Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs at the ANU and Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of Tasmania Faculty of Law. He is also Convenor of the Academic Network of the United Nations Association of Australia (UNAA).
He has worked for the United Nations in a range of capacities, serving as a Political Affairs Officer both for the UN Security Council at UN Headquarters in New York (2001-2004) and for the UN Mission in Liberia (2004-2006). He was also a UN Facilitator for the UN Secretary-General's Good Offices team that mediated peace talks in Cyprus (2004, 2008).
Jeremy has been Chief Investigator on two major Australian Research Council Grants. His ARC Discovery Project 'Leveraging Power and Influence on the UN Security Council' (2015-2019, with Chris Michaelsen, Jochen Prantl and Jeni Whalan) is a cross-institutional, cross-disciplinary collaboration between the University of New South Wales and the ANU. His ARC Linkage Project 'Strengthening the Rule of Law through the United Nations Security Council' (2011-2014, with Hilary Charlesworth) is a collaboration between the ANU Centre for International Governance and Justice and the Australian Government's Australian Civil-Military Centre.
His broader research interests include UN diplomacy, UN sanctions, international mediation and negotiation, peacebuilding and the rule of law. His books include:
- United Nations Sanctions and the Rule of Law (Cambridge 2007 (hardcover), 2008 (reprint) and 2009 (paperback);
- The Role of International Law in Rebuilding Societies after Conflict (Cambridge 2009 (hardcover) & 2013 (paperback), edited with B. Bowden and H. Charlesworth);
- Sanctions, Accountability and Governance in a Globalised World (Cambridge 2009 (hardcover) & 2014 (paperback), edited with K. Rubenstein);
- Strengthening the Rule of Law through the UN Security Council (Routledge 2016, edited with H. Charlesworth).
Diplomatic negotiations tend to be much franker behind closed doors at the United Nations Security Council.
On Tuesday 13 December the Asia-Pacific College of Diplomacy hosted a workshop of the Academic Network of the United Nations Association of Australia (UNAA).
