Dr Hannah Miller

Senior Lecturer in Human Rights, Politics and International Relations

About

I am a Senior Lecturer in Human Rights, Politics and International Relations. Since 2001 I have specialised in the practice of human rights and social justice (first as a practitioner, and then as a practice-based scholar).  I have researched and published in the areas of: charity law; NGO practice; rights-based approaches to development; poverty reduction/eradication strategies (inclusive of rights-framed and rights-referenced approaches); campaign & protest strategies; solidarity movements for the Palestinian peoples. I am currently researching the human rights impacts of the UK's Universal Credit system, and alternative dispute resolution systems. I have also been a finalist for a number of student-led awards for innovations in learning and teaching at both Kingston and Roehampton Universities (see below).

I am a convenor of the British Sociological Association's Sociology of Rights Study Group, an External Examiner for human rights masters' programmes at Goldsmiths University and the School of Advanced Study (UoL), and a reviewer for a number of academic journals (including the International Journal of Human Rights).  Further to my academic experience, I have worked within a number of leading social inclusion and rights organisation including: Regenerate.COM (Centre Manager), Regenerate RISE (Case worker); SCOPE (NHS Patient and Public Involvement Forums South West London manager); War on Want (campaigns team); W.A.R Ethiopia (women's refuge worker).
