Research Statement

(1) Christopher McCrudden, Raya Muttarak, Heather Hamill, Anthony Heath: Affirmative Action in Northern Ireland, supported by the Nuffield Foundation award OPD/33573. Supported by the Nuffield Foundation

(2) Christopher McCrudden: An integrated theory of comparative human rights law. Supported by a three year Leverhulme Trust Major Research Fellowship.

This research will examine the legal meaning of human rights, their significance in theory and in practice, and the approaches taken by legal institutions that protect and advance them. The approach adopted will be 'lawled', but informed by other disciplinary perspectives. The project sets out to develop an integrated theory of human rights law which will consider that body of law from several legal and non-legal perspectives. The aim is to bring together and bridge these differing perspectives to explain not just the legal rules and principles, but also their context.
