Research supervision

I welcome supervisees with an interest in all areas of the European Convention of Human Rights system, especially in relation to the protection of freedom of expression or the 'socio-economic' case law of the European Court of Human Rights.

I am currently supervising two PhD projects:

Jade Brailsford working on state secrecy in times of strategic misinformation and warfare.

Rebecca Lawrence examining the protection of prisoners' qualified rights under the ECHR.
