Mr David van Rooyen, MA, MSc (Dunelm)
David is currently a Doctoral Research Student at Durham University’s School of Government & International Affairs. He is also employed as a Seminar Tutor and a Research Assistant by the University.
David’s PhD thesis aims to develop a normative standard against which we can assess the political legitimacy of various international and global governance institutions, such as the UN, EU, IMF, and WTO. This research will have practical implications in that it will help individuals to determine when they do, or do not, have moral obligations to comply with such organizations.
David also holds an MSc Global Politics from Durham University (2013/14).
