Senior Lecturer


Dominique Dalla-Pozza is a senior lecturer at the ANU College of Law working in the field of Australian Public Law. Her primary research deals with the Australian Parliament and the legislative process, especially the process by which Australian National Security Law is made. She is particularly interested in the work done by parliamentary committees.

Dominique’s other field of interest is in National Security Law – her PhD focused on the process by which the Australian Parliament enacted counter-terrorism between 2001 and 2006. She is currently working on issues relating to the way Australian national security activity is subjected to oversight and accountability.

A distinctive feature of the approach Dom takes to legislative process is her use of ideas drawn from deliberative democratic theory as a core theme in her work. One of her main aims as a researcher is to continue to bring together ideas from the disciplines of political science and law to provide a richer understanding of the law- making process.
