Dr Tom Davis lectures in politics at the School of Social and Political Sciences.

Dr Davis collaborates with the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID), Oxfam Australia, World Vision Australia, and the Nossal Institute for International Health. Recent publications include Human Rights in Asia (Edward Elgar, 2010), ‘The MDGs and the Incomplete Relationship between Development and Foreign Aid’, and ‘The Politics of Human Rights and Development’.
