About

Judith is the Director of the Conflict Management and Resolution program at JCU and also teaches as a lecturer in the program. She has a degree in Business Administration (University of Applied Science Gelsenkirchen, Germany) and holds a Master of Conflict and Dispute Resolution (JCU). Judith is also a PhD candidate, assessing the experiences of female survivors of sexual violence in armed conflict with transitional justice processes. Judith's research focuses on Rwandan women who experienced sexual violence during the genocide against the Tutsi in 1994 and who participated in a local justice process afterwards. In 2016, Judith gave a TEDx talk relating to her research in Rwanda which can be viewed here.

In 2011 Judith spent several months as a consultant with International Rescue Committee (IRC) in the Central African Republic evaluating the traditional conflict resolution processes of tribal chiefs and how they interacted with the more formal conflict resolution processes in the court system. Judith was also engaged in the design of mediation processes and relevant training resources to train village chiefs as conflict resolution practitioners.

Judith is also a nationally accredited mediator trained in the facilitative model, and is a trained conflict coach and facilitator.
