Brivati's academic career evolved from public policy, political history and biography into the teaching of Human Rights.

Brivati is a frequent contributor to print and broadcast media and a keynote and guest lecturer on a range of topics in the UK and abroad.

Brivati is also currently director of The Stabilisation and Recovery Network, the objects of which are to carry out activities that contribute to the stabilisation and recovery efforts of post conflict states by delivering innovative projects through a network of likeminded individuals. The network develops projects that build good governance and the rule of law, combat corruption, aid the recovery of victims of sexual violence and counter the extremism that fuels conflict. The Network also works on related fields that contribute to building peaceful societies and consolidating representative governments while defending, promoting and extending human rights and enhancing gender equality and recovery for the survivors of conflict. They work through training and capacity building centred on individuals who are working in the field and who will join the network because of their direct experience. They work online in areas such as cyber security, combating online radicalisation and remote delivery of projects when and where this is appropriate. TSRN works in any geography in which the skills and the knowledge of their network can make a difference.
