Meet and greet with Visiting Professor Miho Aoi 

Meet Professor Miho Aoi joins ANU College of Law as a visiting fellow from Gakushuin University, Tokyo to learn about her work and be inspired. The Australian National University (ANU) was where her late mentor, Professor Yasuhiro Okudaira, was a visiting fellow nearly 50 years ago.

Professor Aoi has taught Japanese constitutional law for more than 15 years. Based at Gakushuin University in Tokyo, she is currently working on two major research projects.

The first project, and primary focus of her fellowship, involves researching the meaning of statutory and constitutional rights and their application to human rights. In Canberra, she hopes to learn about perspectives and practice of the Human Rights Act 2004 (ACT).

The event is finished.
