Marianne Dickie

Marianne van Galen Dickie began working with refugees in 1994 when she was employed as a Project Officer and Management Committee member of The Rehabilitation Unit for Survivors of Torture and Trauma (TRUSTT) in Queensland. Marianne worked as the immigration advisor for the Australian Democrats from 1997 and until 2004. During her time as an advisor Marianne worked through some of the most politically contentious periods and changes to Migration law. She has authored amendments to Commonwealth legislation, prepared Senate Submissions, and contributed to the Qld & Victorian Lawyers Practice Manuals. Since moving to the ACT in 2007 Marianne has worked for the ANU as the Assistant Convenor and Program Co-ordinator of the Graduate Certificate in Migration Law. Marianne continues to give pro bono migration advice through her work with the Migrant Resource Centre of Canberra and Queanbeyan.
