Author profile: Carolyn Evans

Carolyn M Evans is currently a PhD candidate at the Law Faculty of the University of New South Wales (UNSW Law). The topic of her thesis is ‘Being accountable: Why, to whom and for what should the United Nations Security Council owe, and own, accountability under international law?‘ Her research looks to bridge the substantial governance gap between accepted norms of legal responsibility on the one hand, and practical realities of signal lapses in accountable decision making on the other. For this she has an Australian Postgraduate Award (APA) scholarship tenable for three years, including a top-up scholarship awarded to top-ranked APA recipients in recognition of excellent prior achievements. While pursuing her PhD research full time, on an opportunity basis Carolyn continues her work with ThinkEvans and undertakes research elsewhere, including from June 2012 to April 2014, when she researched forced and servile marriage in Australia and wrote a case book educational tool based on empirical evidence collected in the project.
