Dr Jennifer Beard is currently involved in individual research on the public aspects of charity law over time, political advocacy of charities and the role of the not-for-profit sector in law and development. In all her research, Jennifer focuses on the relationship between public and private power, law and society and law, imperialism and development.

She is particularly interested in theories of the State, political authority, jurisdiction and the role of law in the exercise of political power. Her publications include, a textbook co-edited with Professor Andrew Mitchell, International Law: In Principle (Thomson, 2009) and a monograph The Political Economy of Desire: International Law, Development and the Nation State (Cavendish-Routledge, 2007).
