Doctoral Workshops

Cardiff Law and Global Justice is committed to the critical and engaged teaching of law in a supportive and cosmopolitan environment.

The Centre hosts doctoral research students currently working on surrogacy and the law in India; devolution and the right to health in Kenya; migration, empire and legal geographies. Students are supported by AHRC, Commonwealth and University studentships. Together with Warwick Law School, the Centre launched an annual workshop for doctoral students working on law, global justice and development in May 2018. Organised and lead by doctoral students from both universities, they presented on research topics including security, aid, infrastructure financing, Islamic fiscal law, health devolution, port and poverty reduction and corporate social responsibility.

Joint Doctoral Workshop in Law, Development and Global Justice 2018.

In collaboration with Warwick Law School, we launched an annual workshop for doctoral students working on law, global justice and development in May 2018. Organized by the students themselves and run over two days at Warwick, the workshop saw presentations on research topics including security, aid, infrastructure financing, Islamic fiscal law, health devolution, port and poverty reduction and corporate social responsibility. There was a rich diversity of perspectives based on fieldwork from Colombia, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, the UK and the Middle East. Peer feedback was emphasized as student shared practical and academic insights on developing a thesis and engaging with current policy developments and theoretical work.

Discussions were guided by Dr Celine Tan of the Centre for Law, Regulation & Governance of the Global Economy (GLOBE) at Warwick and Professor Ambreena Manji of Cardiff Law and Global Justice, who provided feedback on individual papers and on the general issues raised. Our students received a warm welcome and there was a lively social programme. We are looking forward to hosting the workshop next year at Cardiff.
