Warwick Law School has from the 1980s established an international reputation for its research and teaching in the area of International Development Law and Human Rights. The Research Group is the focus of activities concerning the relationship between law, development, human rights and social justice.
The Group consists of internationally renowned scholars and research students who are actively engaged in human rights, development and social justice issues. A principal focus of the group is on the countries of the Global South, including newly industrialised and transitional economies. We view visions and practices of human and social development, within and across nations, as aspects both of power to govern and of resistance to domination.
The Group maintains very close links with partner institutions around the world and is actively engaged in critical analytical research published in monographs and journal articles as well as in our own journal - Law, Social Justice and Global Development Journal.
