Marriage and Conjugality
My research in this area has included work on same-sex marriage, civil partnerships, gender equality in marriage, feminist critiques of marriage, and the legal recognition of non-conjugal relationships.
Human Rights in the UK
This project seeks to provide a feminist critique of the UK's Human Rights Act 1998 and examine the debates surrounding the proposal for a British Bill of Rights. This is funded by a BA mid-career fellowship 2018-2019.
British Overseas Territories Constitutional Law
I am particularly interested in the history of Bermuda's Constitution Order 1968, and two aspects of the contemporary relationship between Bermuda and the UK: LGBT rights in particular and the protection of human rights in general; and the UK's reserved powers in relation to Bermuda.
