Expertise

Morag Goodwin is an Associate Professor in International Law.

Morag's primary research interest lies in the field of international law, in particular critical approaches to international law. She conducts research and teaches in the areas of development, participation, non-state actors and human rights in norm generation and implementation. She is interested in questions of legitimacy, in relation to the exclusion of non-state actors, the dominance of human rights, technology regulation and issues of global law.

Her current research concerns questions of global law, including the contours and ethics of global legal scholarship. She is currently writing an article to give shape to her ideas on how we should  understand global law through a number of case-studies.

Additionally, her research focuses on the Roma, examining questions of the role of law in maintaining and enforcing exclusion and of legal empowerment. In particular, she is interested in the way in which Romani individuals and communities interact with and are acted upon by the law. Additional aspects of her research in relation to the Roma are focused on European Union integration efforts.

A further strand of her research relates to the regulation of technology, notably in the area of technology transfer, and human rights and ethics in relation to technology regulation questions. She is the co-author (with Roger Brownsword) of the CUP Law in Context book, Law and the Techologies of the Twenty-First Century (2012) and is currently preparing a contribution to the forthcoming Oxford Handbook on the Law and Regulation of Technology and a review of the Spike Jonze film Her. She is particularly interested in technology transfer within law and development and international law more broadly.

Morag is also leader of the Erasmus Mundus Curriculum Development funded project EDOLAD ('European Doctorate in Law and Development'), heading a consortium of European and non-European partners. In addition, she is involved in Tilburg Law School's global law project.
