Vafa Ghazavi

DPhil in Public Policy Student (2017)

I am an Australian diplomat and have served in Kabul and Vienna. In Vienna, I covered the UN’s drugs and transnational crime agenda, the OSCE, as well as relations with Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo. I have also worked on trade negotiations with ASEAN, for the International Commission on Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament, and on the foreign ministry’s Iraq Taskforce. More recently, I was International Cyber Policy Adviser in the Prime Minister’s department. I have a Bachelor of Economic and Social Sciences with First Class Honours and the University Medal from the University of Sydney and a Master in Public Administration from Harvard University, where I studied as a Fulbright Scholar and did research under the supervision of Amartya Sen. My research interests include philosophy and public policy, behavioural and decision sciences, digital policy, the ethics and governance of AI, and foreign policy.
