 Brief description of your activity focus
Sociology of human rights, political sociology, cultural politics, social movements, media and human rights

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I currently have interests in qualitative research on transnational social solidarity through human rights; how understandings of rights are constructed in interaction; how mediated framings of human rights for their (national, transnational) institutionalisation. I see each of these areas as potentially offering scope for collaboration around the framework objectives.

Recent and in progress publications include:
The Sociology of Human Rights Cambridge University Press - in progress
Transnatioanalizing the Public Sphere? (editor) Polity - in progress
The Cultural Politics of Human Rights: Comparing the US and UK Cambridge University Press 2009
Between citizenship and human rights Sociology 43/6 2009
Global citizenship as showbusiness: the cultural politics of Make Poverty History Media, Culture and Society 30/1 2008
The Pinochet case: cosmopolitanism and intermestic human rights The British Journal of Sociology 58/2 2007
