About meI'm married with two Danish-Australian children, Anna (15) and Carl (12). I work as an international legal advisor for the Danish Institute for Human Rights, with current projects in Vietnam, China, Albania and Central Asia
About my libraryI've enjoyed reading books, for work and for pleasure, as long as I can remember. Its something my parents instilled in me and which I would like to pass on to my own two children.
