Professor Simon Hoffman


Professor, Swansea University, United Kingdom



My research focuses on children's international human rights, in particular on social rights. I am especially interested in how children's human rights are given effect, in particular in systems of political devolution and multi-level governance. My current research examines incorporation of the UNCRC and how it may be mainstreamed into policy decision-making.
