My Qualifications

BA (Hons), LLB (Hons) (ANU); LLM, PhD (Cambridge)


My Research Activities

Daniel's research focuses on the intersection between international law and media law.  His current scholarship focuses on the significance of informed publics in addressing global problems, with implications for both the regulation of digital media and the mediatization of international law.  He is especially interested in the connections between media and human rights, with a focus on media freedom, mediatization and the role of digital media platforms.  He is involved in a longer term project on international law and materiality with Dr Jessie Hohmann of UTS Faculty of Law.  Daniel continues to research and publish more generally in human rights and international legal theory.
