Windu Kisworo is currently carrying out an LL.M degree at the University of Melbourne, Australia. In addition, Mr. Kisworo has continued his work as a public interest lawyer at the Indonesian Center for Environmental Law (ICEL), an Indonesian-based non-governmental organization, which specializes on environmental law by promoting good governance and sustainable development.
Before joining CIEL as a fellow, his duties at the Indonesian Centre for Environmental Law involved a broad range of activities related to environmental law reform. Furthermore, since the promotion of sustainable development and the enforcement of environmental law in Indonesia requires the creation and/or promotion of good governance, Mr. Kisworo was also involved in various legal reform activities, including the promotion of "access to information" in Indonesia. In expanding his international network, Mr. Kisworo also became a member of Environmental Alliances Worldwide (E-LAW), which gives public interest lawyers and scientists around the world the skills and resources they need to protect the environment through law.
At CIEL, Mr. Kisworo has conducted research in the area of human rights, particularly, on the "Promotion of Trans National Corporation's Accountability on Human Rights in Indonesia." In addition, he also conducted research on the utilization of the World Bank Inspection Panel by analyzing some of World Bank's safeguard policies. In addition, in trade and environment issues, he conducted research on "The Necessity of Capacity Building for Indonesia's Effective Utilization of WTO Dispute Settlement Mechanism: Implementation of GATT Article XX for Trade and Environment Issues."
As part of the fellowship, Windu attended International Association Study
on Common Property (IASCP) Conference in Bali, Indonesia in June 2006.
At this conference, he did a joint presentation with Denni Jayme from
CIEL on 'Recognizing Adat Community Rights to Promoting Democratic, Just
and Sustainable Natural Resources Management: Indonesia through the Lens
of Philippine Experiences'. He also attended the Public Interest Environmental
Law Conference (PIELC) in Eugene, Oregon in March 2007 and gave a presentation
on "Transnational Corporations and Human Rights in Indonesia."
