Dr Kenneth Kang is a Post-Doctoral Researcher in Public International Law at the Humanities and Law Department, Bournemouth University. He is currently researching the role that river rights play in producing new modes of regulation along China’s transboundary rivers; investigating the notion of ‘holism’ in hydropower decision-making; and researching the symbolic power of International Environmental Law as a force for managing dissent in the South China Sea.
His work is theoretically informed by the German sociologist, Niklas Luhmann, and he has recently published articles in Law and Critque, and the International Journal of Law in Context.
He is the senior Editor of the Bournemouth University Law Review and he currently teaches the LLM module, ‘Principles of International Law, International Organisations and the World Trade Organisation’.
