Helen works with First Nation communities across the Northern Territory of Australia. She has worked with the Aboriginal Alternative Dispute Resolution Service, with the Right People for Country project and the Community Justice Centre in the Northern Territory. Helen is concerned with the injustices faced by First Nation people and believes that alternative dispute resolution practices and peacebuilding opportunities should be utilised to support community lead solutions. Helen believes in working on procedural fairness and responsible representation to gain commitments to collaborative decision making and that peacebuilding creates realistic human opportunity to rise out of despair and distrust.
