      Research Interests

      My expertise  is international children's rights with a particular focus on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, education rights and children's rights to participate in decision-making. I also have  written extensively on national education and social security law.

       

       

      Research Statement

      I  am Director of the  cross-university Centre for Children's Rights (www.qub.ac.uk/ccr).  I have  particular expertise in rights-based participatory research with  children.  

      My conceptualisation of children's right to participate in decision-making (based on four core concepts -Space, Voice, Audience and Influence) published in the British Educational Research Journal in 2007 is one of the most highly cited children's rights papers  and the model  has been used widely by academics and policy makers.
