Dr Peter Finn


I am a multi-award-winning Lecturer in the Politics Department. I am interested in the intersection between national security and human rights, as well as the logic(s) that underpin policies at this intersection. I am currently editing a volume focused on the official record, the rule of law, national security and democracy. I am also interested in the US electoral system.

In 2016, I received the BISA-HEA National Award for Excellence in Teaching International Studies by a Postgraduate Student. I have also received two Kingston University Learning and Teaching Awards. 

Among other publications, my work has been featured in The Independent, The Conversation, The Daily Express, Open Democracy and The Guardian.
