Grant successes for Dr Cian Murphy
Posted on 29/03/2012
The Dickson Poon School of Law would like to congratulate Dr Cian Murphy on his recent award of two research grants.
Dr Murphy has been awarded a British Academy Small Research Grant to undertake a project entitled “Comparative Counter-Terrorism in the post-'War on Terror' Era: Material Support in the EU and US”. The project, which will commence in July 2012, will use the idea of legal culture to explore the operation of certain counter-terrorism law in both jurisdictions. It will build on Dr Murphy's work in his book, EU Counter-Terrorism Law: Pre-emption & the Rule of Law and will offer the first sustained comparison of EU and US counter-terrorism.
Dr Murphy has also been awarded a Fulbright-Schuman Research Scholarship which will support his stay at Georgetown University and New York University in the Spring/Summer of 2013. Dr Murphy will work with the Centre on National Security and the Law to deepen understanding of targeted asset-freezing sanctions in global law.
Cian Murphy joined the School of Law as Lecturer in September 2010. He is Director of Graduate Research Studies at the School of Law. He completed his doctoral research at King’s in 2009, supported by an AHRC Doctoral Award, NUI Travelling Studentship and Modern Law Review Scholarship. A monograph based on his doctoral thesis, EU Counter-Terrorism Law: Pre-emption & the Rule of Law, will be published later this year. Dr Murphy blogs for Human Rights in Ireland and The Guardian.
