Student research profiles
I am presently looking at the issue of human rights, with a particular focus on the insights that might be gained about the extant human rights system(s) through the lens of complexity theory. I retain an interest in the idea of democratic authority within and beyond the state and the idea of authority when applied to other minority communities, including ethno-cultural groups and indigenous peoples.
Before coming to Lancaster, I was Professor of International Law at the University of Leeds. I have also worked at the Universities of Liverpool, UWE, Bristol, and Central Lancashire.
