Together with Jessie Blackbourn of the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, I recently was awarded a grant to pursue an 18-month project on counter-terrorism review in the UK. The project will identify existing knowledge gaps in UK counter-terrorism review, explore the implications and impacts for rights of how counter-terrorism review currently works, and propose reforms based on the findings of this cross-disciplinary research. The project will produce both academic outputs and a stakeholder-oriented report that will outline, justify and contextualise the major policy reform proposals resulting from the research.
We are now hiring a research fellow to be part of the research team. The post-holder will be based in Birmingham, although some national travel will be required. The research fellow will have an excellent grounding in law, counter-terrorism, security, public administration or cognate fields, and a demonstrated ability to work independently to the very highest levels of research excellence. The research fellow will work with the project leaders to develop appropriate methodologies, relationships with stakeholders, and publications from the project that will make both intellectual and practical contributions to the field.
The full details are here and the closing date is 7 July 2017.
