Professor Rosemary Foot (Emeritus Fellow) has been awarded a Leverhulme Emeritus Fellowship for a research project on China, the United Nations and Human Protection. 

This research project examines how a more powerful China satisfies its desire to shape global norms relating to human protection in ways that reflect its ideological beliefs, and bolster its image as a responsible great power.

These twin goals represent a particular challenge for Beijing to satisfy because human protection involves normative contestation of a particularly fundamental kind for a state that privileges the security of the state and regime above that of the security of the individual.
