Dr Kerri Woods


I work on contemporary political philosophy. I have written on human rights theory, environmental human rights, solidarity, feminist thought and refugees. 

I am a member of the Global Network for the Study of Human Rights and the Environment, and Treasurer of the Association for Social and Political Philosophy .

Prior to coming to Leeds I held a Teaching Fellowship and British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of York. Prior to that, I did my PhD at the University of Glasgow.
