Law researchers secure British Council funding
A joint application by several academics in The University of Manchester Law School has been successful in securing ‘British Council Global Partnership’ funding to work with China University of Political Science and Law (CUPL) in Beijing and Capital Normal University in Beijing.
Principle Investigator Dr Joseph Lee (Reader in Corporate and Financial Law), and Co-Investigators Dr Vincenzo Bavoso (Senior Lecturer in Commercial Law), Dr Pinar Oruc (Lecturer in Commercial Law), Dr Luke Graham (Lecturer in Public Law and Human Rights), and Dr Abubakri Yekini (Lecturer in Conflict of Law) will work on a project titled ‘Digital economy and resilient society’.
This project will establish an international research network between the three institutions to examine the infrastructure of digital platforms and their use in the economy and society through a comparative lens. In addition, the project will host several research seminars split between both the UK and China.
The Law School is pleased to see new senior, new early career, and established colleagues collaborating to produce research, secure external funding, and build strong international collaborations.
