Dr Kenneth Kang is a Lecturer in Law at the Humanities and Law Department, Bournemouth University. His research revolves around one key question: how does society evolve to guarantee the continuance and acceptance of communication? Drawing upon the strategies of modern information theory, structuralism and evolutionary theory, his research aspires to restore the lost link between theory and practice, in particular to the fields of international law, environmental governance and risk management.
He is the Senior Editor of the Bournemouth University Law Review, and currently teaches Tort Law and Legal Skills and Systems. He has also published widely in journals such as Water International, Systems Research and Behavioural Sciences, International Journal of Law in Context, and Law and Critique.
Previously, Kenneth was a PHD researcher at Xiamen University (China), the China International Water Law Research Group, and he was also a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Utrecht Centre for Water, Oceans and Sustainability Law (UCWOSL), Utrecht University.
