Dr Sharon Young


I have lectured and taught seminars in the Politics Department at Kingston since 2012.

My special interests are human rights, in particular rights at the end of life and how human rights discourses are used and understood in a social and political context.

I am actively involved in local politics and campaigning.

I also work part-time for an MP as a senior caseworker, specialising in housing, benefits and health enquiries.
