Fauve Kurnadi

Legal Adviser, International Humanitarian Law

Australian Red Cross

Australian companies continue to expand into new international territories, including countries affected by, or prone to, armed conflict. Whilst corporates have strong human rights frameworks in place, international humanitarian law (the laws of war) has remained largely unknown. Fauve has been quietly, determinedly and expertly shifted the global and domestic landscape to ensure corporates play their part in creating better humanitarian outcomes for communities experiencing war. She has influenced domestic regulatory frameworks, international reporting standards and produced practical guidance, tools and training to support Australian corporates with operations in conflict affected areas to embed respect for international humanitarian law into their organisations.
