Jason Squire worked in law enforcement and prosecution for 16 years before entering the humanitarian development world. He worked as a police officer in South Australia. Later, he uncovered mass graves as an investigator of crimes against humanity with the UN. He then moved into the children’s rights field throughout Asia, the Middle East, eastern Europe and north Africa.
Jason then stepped away from humanitarian work and completed a PhD with Universiti Sains Malaysia, focused on where human/child rights and the philosophy that guides Shariah law can be better integrated into Malaysian civil law responses to vulnerable children in custody. He has now joined the Raoul Wallenberg Institute as Director of the Regional Asia Office in Jakarta, Indonesia.
