Thesis Title: 

Interrogating the concept of sovereignty in International law: What role has sovereignty played in the construction of international law?

Supervisors: 

Dr Jessie Hohmann, Professor Penny Green and Dr Isobel Roele.

Summary of Research: 

My research focuses on extraterritorial use of force against terrorists (NSA) when the armed attack is not attributable to the hosting state. It examines the politics behind the effective control over the armed attacks and its conflict with the customary use of force in self-defence in the era of the negative sovereignty.
