Law in a Global Context

Law in a Global Context

The group combines core areas of specialist expertise and research excellence within the Law School and promotes interdisciplinary dialog and research output between these. 

What are we Doing?

The group combines core areas of specialist expertise and research excellence within the Law School and promotes interdisciplinary dialogue and research output between these. 

  

Why is it important?

The establishment of the Group is reflective of the international context in which much discourse surrounding the development of legal regulation is situated. The characterisation of the development of legal regulation as a matrix spanning the national and international legal systems is a common feature of the subject matters incorporated within the Group.

The Group provides opportunities for the development of collaboration and external research networks of our academic staff on both a national and international level. This is achieved through creating conditions for larger programmes of research by facilitating as many connections and linkages as possible between researchers and potential opportunities.  

 

How are we different?

The Group is broad based and includes scholars and research students who have research interests in the fields of public and private international law, international criminal law, corporate governance, international humanitarian and human rights law, international environmental law and international economic law as well as the Law of the European Union and the jurisprudence of the European Convention of Human Rights. The Group looks to identify commonalities and synergies within the development of the law in these areas. A common theme is the consideration of human rights, their conceptualisation and protection across these research areas.
