From director of security to humanitarian aid worker, Kay Danes has provided consultation to many groups, including the Australian Institute of Export, the National Human Rights Commission of Australia on the treatment of people under arrest or detained in prison, the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties; and the secretary to the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture.

Kay’s presentations address key issues when working in a war zone, which became part of a National Debate in Australia on Afghanistan.
