Biography

Brian Chang is Research Assistant on the Parliaments, the Rule of Law and Human Rights Project, where he has been conducting research on how to strengthen parliamentary protection of the rule of law and human rights since June 2015. In this capacity, Brian has researched and written background papers on the role of parliaments in the protection of the rule of law and human rights as well as the contribution of parliaments to the work of the UN Human Rights Council and its Universal Periodic Review, synthesising a global narrative for actions taking place at the international, regional and national levels. Brian is also working with the Westminster Foundation for Democracy to strengthen parliamentary protection of human rights in a number of countries, including Georgia, Macedonia, Serbia, Ukraine, Uganda and Tunisia. 

Brian graduated with a BA in Jurisprudence from The Queen's College, Oxford, which he remembers fondly, and will soon be pursuing LL.M. studies at George Washington University as a recipient of a generous Thomas Buergenthal scholarship.
