Human Rights in Development

My current research in the areas of human rights, children's rights and 'law and development' focuses on the following issues:

  • sustainable development, de-growth and economic, social and cultural rights
  • human rights obligations of foreign states and non-state actors, in particular companies
  • law and development as a field of study, including human rights-based approaches to development (HRBAD 2.0)
  • children's rights: a legal commentary on the Convention on the Rights of the Child; inter-country adoption; international child abduction
