Dr Danielle Chubb
Dr Danielle Chubb is a Senior Lecturer in International Relations in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Deakin University, and a researcher in the Alfred Deakin Institute of Citizenship and Globalisation.
Dr Chubb is currently completing a book project with Professor Ian McAllister, which provides a survey on public opinion and defence and foreign policy making in Australia in the post WWII period (due for publication in 2020). Dr Chubb also has a particular interest in the interplay of human rights, peace and security norms, and how this intersection might play out in potential solutions to conflict in Northeast Asia, and in the case of North Korea in particular.
Dr Chubb’s publications include a 2014 book with Columbia University Press, which examines the way non-state actors have contributed to official South Korean discourses on inter-Korean relations, as well as a 2018 edited volume (with Andrew Yeo) published with Cambridge University Press. This volume brings together both academic and activist experts, and explores the evolution North Korean human rights activist networks and discourses from a transnational perspective. A paperback version of this volume is due for publication in August 2019. Dr Chubb regularly speaks to academic, policy and public audiences on the human rights situation inside North Korea, and how North Korea’s continued violations of international law might be addressed through nonviolent means.
