Dr Aron D'Souza, Ph.D.

Founder and President

Dr Aron D’Souza, M.A.(Oxon.) Ph.D.

Founder and President

  • Led Peter Thiel’s Successful Litigation Against Gawker Media (Involving the Wrestler Hulk Hogan).
  • Co-founder, OPEN – Venture Capital Fund.
  • Law, Oxford University.
  • Ph.D. (Intellectual Property Law), University of Melbourne.

Aron D’Souza is the president of the Enhanced Games and leads a global movement of athletes who believe in science and aims to end the exploitative practices of the International Olympic Committee. 

Previously, he led Peter Thiel’s litigation against Gawker Media involving the wrestler Hulk Hogan, which resulted in one of the largest invasion of privacy judgement in history, and is the subject of the book Conspiracy by best-selling author Ryan Holiday.

Together with the Foundation for Young Australians, Aron founded the Nexus Australian Youth Summit, a branch of a global movement of young philanthropists and impact investors convened by the United Nations. The Prime Minister, the Hon. Kevin Rudd, commented, “The Nexus movement is recognised for its role in helping to build momentum towards a new way of interacting within communities that is socially focused and globally engaged.” In 2014, Men’s Style magazine recognised him as one of Australia’s most influential men.

In terms of scholarly output, Dr D’Souza is the foundation editor of The Journal Jurisprudence, a quarterly publication on legal philosophy. The Rt. Hon. Malcolm Fraser, former Prime Minister of Australia, commented in a foreword to a recent edition: “The Journal Jurisprudence has a high reputation as an effective and authoritative law journal.” Distinguished past contributors include the Hon. Justice Michael Kirby of the High Court of Australia, former Australian of the Year Stephen Keim, SC, and Judge Baltasar Garzón of the National Court of Spain.

Additionally, he is the author of three books: The Art of Time (2007), Special Protections: The Ethics of Copyright and Aboriginal Iconography (2009) and A General Theory of Property (2011). He edited a book on the impact of the Nuremberg war trials on international law. 

Aron is an avid athlete and a keen believer in the importance of sport. Whilst at Oxford, he played rugby for Wadham College, where he wore the number 14 jersey and has served as the team’s Honorary Chairman.
