Research Fellow, Centre for Law Markets and Regulation


Hannah is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Law Markets and Regulation. Her research area is transnational law and financial crime, with a focus on bribery and corruption.

Before joining the Centre for Law Markets and Regulation, Hannah was a Senior Research Analyst with the Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre. Hannah has also taught Commercial Law at the University of Technology, Sydney.

Hannah’s book: The Global Anti-Corruption Regime – The case of Papua New Guinea (Routledge, In Press) documents the evolution of a global regime to combat corrupt activity, highlighting the challenges faced in implementing and enforcing this regime. The interplay between legal, social, political and economic dynamics is at the heart of Hannah’s approach to legal research.

A key theme in Hannah’s research is the way in which power dynamics and diverse values and interests shape regulatory regimes and impact the effectiveness of these regimes across diverse jurisdictions. Hannah’s focus on corrupt conduct emphasises its role in facilitating many other forms of transnational crime. Her work explores additional and alternative approaches to targeting corruption and related activities, beyond criminalisation.
