How Shankari Chandran Made Her Mark On Guantanamo Bay

Shankari Chandran, a former human rights lawyer turned writer, discusses her second novel, The Barrier, with ABC conversations.

 

A Tamil-Australian, who grew up in Canberra surrounded by parents who were both doctors, Shankari moved away from the family tradition and became a lawyer. While working at the social justice desk of a large corporate law firm in London, she persuaded the firm to pursue a landmark international case focused on the fate of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay.
