PhD Supervision

Current Supervision

James Hevers

James commenced his doctoral studies in early February 2020. His thesis is in the field of employment law. In particular, it explores regulations affecting the high rates of mental health conditions experienced by sworn Queensland police officers through the wicked problem framework. James’ thesis critically analyses the existing regulatory systems to identify how they can be improved to tackle this complex, dynamic, and uncertain societal problem.

Looking for a supervisor?

I am a Lecturer in the fields of corporate law, and law and technology. My research explores the intersection of democratic norms, regulatory theory and the role of technology. In particular, my research explores how self-regulation can become more permeable to changing public values to ensure the regulation of public goods are more responsive and reflexive. I am seeking PhD candidates, researchers, and agencies that might want to collaborate. If you are interested, please contact me via the contact page.
