Please note that I am an experienced researcher in the field of human rights. In recent years, my research has moved into the field of human rights education and I am currently pursuing a doctorate in education (my original doctorate is in law) at the School of Education at Queen's University Belfast under the supervision of Professor Laura Lundy and Dr. Alison McKenzie on the role of law in Human Rights Education. I have also just been appointed as an editor of the Human Rights Education. I was therefore unsure whether I should apply as a Specialist or as an Early Career Researcher - I am not sure I fit well in either category but I am very interested in becoming part of this network as I intend to continue to focus my research exclusively in the field of human rights educaiton.
