Ben is the module co-ordinator for Medical Law and Ethics, and he also teaches on the Tort Law, and Constitutional and Administrative Law modules. Ben acts as a personal tutor for students on both the LLB Law and the LLB Law & Criminology programmes.
Ben conducts research in the areas of forced migration, human rights and international law. His doctoral research (which he is conducting at the University of Bristol, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)) concerns the human rights protection of internally displaced persons (IDPs). Inspired by his time working with non-governmental organisations and United Nations’ agencies in Georgia, this research engages with questions concerning the realisation of durable solutions to internal displacement, specifically a legal right to return in international law.
Expressions of interest are welcome from students keen to conduct research, at any level, in any of the areas of Ben's research or teaching expertise.
Ben is an active supporter of Sanctuary Scholarship schemes. He works closely with Article 26, a project of the Helena Kennedy Foundation, whose aim is to promote access to higher education for people who have fled persecution and have sought asylum in the UK - article26.hkf.org.uk.
Ben sits on the Law School's Research Committee.
