CIBEL would like to announce two new members to the team. Professor Cameron Holley and Dr Anton Didenko joined the organisation in late September. Cameron and Anton will each be bringing insight into their areas of expertise, and the CIBEL team would like to wish them a warm welcome.
Find out more about Cameron and Anton:
Professor Cameron Holley
Cameron is a Professor and Head of School for the School of Law, Society and Criminology at UNSW Law & Justice. He is the current co-chair of the International Network of Environmental Compliance and Enforcement (INECE) Academic Committee, a member of the Taskforce on Earth System Law, and an associate editor of the Asia Pacific Journal of Environmental Law. Cameron has publications in the areas of environmental law, natural resources law, energy law and water law, with a focus on regulation and governance. His past work has examined energy and disaster risk education in Hong Kong and Indonesia, and his current research agenda is centred on water, energy and climate governance.
Dr Anton Didenko
Anton is a Senior Lecturer at UNSW Sydney. He specialises in banking and finance law (with a focus on FinTech and cyber security) and has published widely on the legal aspects of central bank digital currencies (CBDC), regulatory sandboxes, decentralised finance and open banking. Anton’s research on CBDC (including a report published by the Asian Development Bank and an article ‘Central Bank Digital Currencies as a Potential Response to Some Particularly Pacific Problems’ in Asia Pacific Law Review) attracted a lot of attention from international organisations and policymakers (including the G20 and the Bank for International Settlements), as well as leading central banks.
Prior to joining UNSW Sydney, Anton worked as a lawyer in various roles, including as head of legal support of international operations in major commercial banks.
Anton is a leading expert in transnational commercial law: he is the author of a monograph on the documentary history of the Cape Town Convention on International Interests in Mobile Equipment (Hart, 2021) and the managing editor of the Cape Town Convention Journal.
Anton holds multiple law degrees from a number of countries, including an MJur and a DPhil from the University of Oxford.
