Alice Harrison awarded a World University Network Scholarship

Published: 29 January 2010

Alice Harrison, post graduate research student in the School of Law has been awarded a World University Network Scholarship to go to Sydney later this year. This is the first occasion that a PGR student has won such a Scholarship.

Alice is researching dignity and law and has spent time in Canada attending workshops held by Professor John Burrows on Indigenousness Law.

Inspired by this workshop Alice wrote a beautiful article ‘The Four Hills,’ which combines fiction literary passages with more academic ones.  This article conveys very forcefully the challenge posed by indigenousness and first-nation people and strikes at the heart of the troubled interaction and structures of power that persist between legal traditions.

A second and shorter piece was submitted to the Faculty of Law, Art and Social Sciences Journal at Southampton.  This piece concerns the aspiration of law in the light economically oppressive and mono-logical international law, thus exposing the inconsistencies between the aspirations of the UN charter and its iniquitous implementation.

Alice has now been awarded a World University Network’s scholarship to go and spend some months in Sydney to continue to work on her PhD there with a dedicated supervisor.

Oren Ben-Dor her supervisor says of Alice that "Once again, I know that this stay will further enrich her quest in a wonderful way and I fully support it".
