  • Renan’s work with us has focused primarily on writing a paper on restorative policing, and supporting Why me? with our submission to the Victims’ Code of Practice consultation.
  • He has had to work remotely for Brazil for the majority of his internship, and was impressed by how smoothly we were able to adapt during this period.
  • From August 2020 Renan will be working as a Research Assistant on a project called the “Legal Priorities project” – focusing on the impact of law on the long term future of humanity. He is also looking forward to finishing his Masters in the coming months.
