Mr Daniel Lowe
Biography / Current Research
Daniel completed his B.A (HONS) in Law with History at Keele University in 2005. The following year Keele awarded him a scholarship to undertake an M.Phil in Law, which he completed in 2008. His thesis, entitled: 'Universal human rights: a defence', provided a normative justification of the foundations of human rights and defended human rights approaches against charges of parochialism, utopianism, and speciesism.
Daniel's PhD project is entitled: 'Actualising universal human rights: an examination of the right to health'. This project will undertake a thorough examination of the theory of the right to health as a means of assessing the universal applicability of human rights in general. The primary aim of this thesis will be to provide some level of clarification on the capability of achieving universal implementation of human rights.
Daniel currently leads tutorials in the undergraduate module the Individual and the State.
