From the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) website:

Jonathan Morrow is a program officer in the Institute's Rule of Law Program, focusing on constitution-making in Iraq. In March 2004, before joining the Institute, he worked for Iraqi participants in the negotiations for the Transitional Administrative Law for Iraq. Prior to that, he advised the Asia Foundation and the government of Afghanistan on law reform and constitutional implementation. From 1999 to 2002, Morrow was a legal adviser in the Office of the Special Representative to the Secretary General in the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor, developing a legislative regime, electoral laws for the successful 2001 Constituent Assembly election, and a constituent process. Following East Timor's independence in May 2002, he was a consultant to the UN Mission of Support in East Timor, and later to the World Bank, advising the East Timorese government on state-state and state-corporate matters related to areas of disputed sovereign rights. In that role, he worked within the prime minister's office, managing treaty negotiations that formed the legal framework for East Timor's financial independence. He earned his doctorate in the Faculty of Arts at Monash University, Melbourne, and has arts and law degrees from the University of Sydney. Morrow is a practitioner of the Supreme Court of New South Wales.[1]
