Research interests

Daniella Lock’s PhD specifically examines executive accountability and human rights in the national security law context. She is interested in the attempt by European human rights law to prevent governments from abusing both national security and emergency powers, as means to preserve democracy in Europe and prevent the spread of authoritarianism. As part of this interest she is examining the means by which human rights law has developed to enable governments to evade accountability.
