Kashpee Wahid, Australia

Kashpee is an Australian solicitor with experience in the fields of Employment Law, Criminal Law, Human Rights and Administrative Law. Graduating from the Australian National University (ANU) with a Bachelor of Arts (majoring in English Literature and International Relations) and a Bachelor of Laws (Hons), she has joined the Fletcher School to pursue her interests in Public International Law and International Arbitration. She developed these interests whilst undertaking a semester-long exchange programme at the University of Vienna and a summer exchange programme at the University of Alabama. Prior to graduation, Kashpee served as a Residential Scholar at the ANU for four consecutive years, while also working as an Editor of an International Law publication, a rapporteur at a UN conference on Peaceful Use of Outer Space, and as a Contract Law Intern at a private organisation. Her Honours dissertation on determining punishment for Crimes Against Humanity has since been published as a Research Paper by the ANU College of Law and presented at The Australasian Conference on Undergraduate Research.

 Since graduation, Kashpee has worked with the Australian Federal Police Association and the Welfare Rights and Legal Centre in Canberra on mostly Criminal, Employment, and Human Rights issues. She has also worked as a freelance legal copywriter and editor, and undertaken independent research projects on how to facilitate access to justice in developing countries through innovative technology, and on mechanisms to protect the labour rights of garments workers in Bangladesh, having made field visits to human rights training camps for women held in Dhaka. Moving to Boston from Montpellier, after completing a French language immersion experience and working as a photographer with an artist collective, Kashpee is excited to be a part of the Fletcher community!
