Deborah Bird Rose was a Senior Fellow in the Fenner School of Environment and Society at the Australian National University, Canberra. Previously she was a Professor in the Centre for Research on Social Inclusion at Macquarie University, Sydney. Her work focused on entwined social and ecological justice, and was based on her long-term research with Aboriginal people in Australia. She wrote across several disciplines, including anthropology, history, philosophy, cultural studies and religious studies, and she worked with Aboriginal people in their claims to land and in other decolonising contexts.

She died in Sydney in December 2018.
