With a culture that fosters intellectual activity and enquiry, the Law Department at Middlesex has an international reputation for the quality of our research. Much of the work we undertake has an international and multi-disciplinary focus. Our expertise is particularly strong in the areas of international and human rights law, including minority rights and international criminal law; discrimination and employment law; EU law; and migration law.
Members of the department currently supervise more than 30 doctoral students who also benefit from the supportive environment and intellectual climate of the Law School's Doctoral Institute.
Our research capability and commitment to sharing this with others enlivens our teaching, informs policy and policy-makers, and provides numerous opportunities for intellectual debate. Our strength in the field is reflected in our entry to the Research Excellence Framework 2014.
The majority of staff within the department are engaged in research, and all our senior researchers and professors have a profile on the international stage. We have an excellent record of publication in leading journals and through prestigious academic publishers, especially in the areas of international development policy and practice, and around issues of conflict and security.
Staff have attracted grants from major funders including the Economic and Social Research Council, British Council, Nuffield Foundation, European Union and others, and carry out consultancy for a range of bodies including various agencies of the United Nations and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
