When Australians want to feel the pain of others

BRIANNE LANGUER has taken a step back from her job as the head of the Commonwealth Secretariat for Human Rights.

Ms Langurian’s position is currently vacant, with the office focusing on the global human rights situation in the Middle East and Central Asia.

“The office is in the process of being wound down,” Ms Languran said.

“It is being wound up in a way that is most effective and efficient.”

Ms Langourian is the director of Human Rights Watch Australia.

She has worked at the office since 2010.

The Human Rights Council in Canberra has previously confirmed that Ms Langouran will step down from her position, with her departure from the council likely to be announced in the coming weeks.

“I don’t want to speculate on what might happen, I want to just say that we are currently reviewing the office and that’s how it will be done,” Ms Parry said.
