In November, we expanded our team with the addition of two new staff members, Emily Enright and Amy Lightfoot. Emily is our new Policy Intern, and she is working on the Emerging Voices Network and wider Gender, Youth and Diversity workstream. A former Australian civil servant, and a former project officer with the Young Australians in International Affairs, Emily’s research interests include nuclear ethics and legitimacy; WMD arms control; the impact of emerging technologies on international security and the deterrence/disarmament debate.
Amy is our new Administrator and will be the central contact for any administrative enquiries. She is experienced in event management and project coordination and is looking forward to developing her career within BASIC and learning the finer points of running a successful think tank. Amy’s interests include the intersection between disarmament and development, the effects of armed conflict on civilians and movement building.
Please join us in welcoming our new team members onboard, more information on their work can be found within our staff pages. We look forward to working with them into the New Year and beyond.
