About the Project
The establishment of the TRA has raised criticism with regard to a variety of institutional and public law issues, including the allocation of power, the need for primary legislation regarding decision-making processes, the scope and assessment of ‘economic/public interest’, accountability and access to judicial review. This PhD project will analyse the above issues in the context of the development of international trade law and the UK’s position more generally, linking it to the debate related to the appropriate balancing of public and private interests.
The project is timely, in that it would possibly feed into the workings of the newly established Trade Remedies Authority and related law. The Trade Remedies Authority is going to be located in Reading, which might facilitate exchange between the PhD student and staff. Although the research undertaken for this project is likely to be doctrinal, there is scope for a potential empirical component, depending on the perspective and expertise of the candidate.
Students need to be self-funded, although the University does offer some regional bursaries.
