Biography / Current Research
Daniel completed his B.A (HONS) in Law with History at Keele University in 2005 and was awarded a scholarship to undertake an M.Phil in Law at the same institution the following year. His thesis, completed in 2008, was entitled: 'Universal human rights: a defence'. With this Daniel provided a normative justification of the foundations of human rights and defended human rights approaches against charges of parochialism, utopianism, and speciesism.
Daniel is currently undertaking a PhD in Law at Durham University on a Graduate Teaching Scholarship. His project, entitled: 'Actualising universal human rights: an examination of the right to health', undertakes a thorough examination of the theory of the right to health as a means of assessing the ultimate realisability of human rights. In essence, the primary aim of this thesis is to re-consider the theoretical nature of rights in order to question whether normative universal application is truly achievable. In addition to his research and teaching roles, Daniel is also Co-Deputy Convenor for the Human Rights Research Centre (HRC).
Daniel currently leads tutorials in two undergraduate modules;
i) The Individual and the State
ii) International Human Rights
