Research overview

Professor Wheatley is interested in how the idea of legitimate political authority is understood in international law. This includes both the idea of democratic authority within and beyond the state, and the idea of authority when applied to other political communities, including ethno-cultural minorities and indigenous peoples.

PhD supervision

Professor Wheatley is happy to hear from potential PhD students with proposals in the field of international law, with a particular interest in democacy, human rights and the rights of minorities and indigenous peoples.
