Some text you might find useful.

Following is the text that I used in my nomination of Professor Gillian Triggs for the Australian of the Year Award. The facts were gathered from various internet sites including the Australian Human Rights Commission.

You can also nominate her, although the organisation states that the award is not determined by the number of nominations it can't hurt, by using this link to the Australian of the Year site.

Professor Triggs is an outstanding Australian academic specialising in international law. She has publications World Trade Organization disputes resolution, energy and resources law, law of the sea, territorial sovereignty, jurisdiction and immunity, international criminal law, international environmental law, and human rights. She is the President of the Australian Human Rights Commission and as such she launched the National Inquiry into Children in Immigration Detention 2014, to "investigate the ways in which life in immigration detention affects the health, well-being and development of children."
