Professor Steven WheatleyProfessor
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.
PhD Supervision Interests
Professor Wheatley is happy to hear from potential PhD students with proposals in the field of international law, with a particular interest in democacy, human rights and the rights of minorities and indigenous peoples.
