Visiting Researchers

Mr. Douglas Alastair Cubie, Faculty of Law, University College Cork, Ireland, April 2013

The focus of Dug’s visit to Strathclyde was to explore linkages between climate justice, natural disasters and human rights, funded through an Irish Research Council New Foundations Grant.

Dug’s interests are in the areas of humanitarian assistance, international development and refugee protection. His doctoral research analyses the right to humanitarian assistance following natural and human-made disasters, and the potential codification of these rights into international law.
