From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ross Daniels was the Australian Labor Party candidate for the Division of Ryan in the Australian federal election in 2007. While he did not win, he achieved Labor's best result ever in Ryan at a General Election: a vote of 46.2% after a swing of 6.6%. The seat is expected to be a marginal - hence heavily contested - seat at the next Australian Federal Election.

Ross was the Chairperson of Amnesty International's International Executive Committee from 1993 to 1997.[1][2]

He is a keen campaigner for human rights around the world; he is a frequent speaker on this topic at seminars and conferences, and has been actively involved in a range of human rights groups, including Australians for Native Title and Reconciliation, and the Human Rights and Peace Society Nepal. He has served on the Board of many community and welfare organisations, besides Amnesty International. He is currently a member of the Council of the Queensland University of Technology. He has also been President of the Queensland Council of Social Services.

Daniels has been a Lecturer at the Queensland University of Technology for 20 years, and before that was a social worker for 12 years. He met his wife Sharon while they were both social workers. He lives in The Gap, a suburb of Brisbane. He and Sharon have four children. He holds a Bachelor of Social Work degree, a Bachelor of Economics degree, and a Masters degree in Social Planning and Development, all from the University of Queensland.

He has a strong interest in current science and technology debates including the application of information and communication technologies in teaching and learning. He is a Brisbane Broncos fan and enjoys bike riding in the forest parks.

Daniels opposes the Iraq war, and has been involved in the Iraq Solidarity Group, as well as groups seeking a peaceful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
