Northumbria Information Rights Group

Meet our staffThe Northumbria Information Rights Research Group was developed subsequent to liaison with the Department for Constitutional Affairs and the Law Society to raise awareness of what was a new legal discipline, and to provide high quality research activity in the information rights field.

The group's research has traditionally centred upon access to information regimes, data protection, privacy and information sharing but has expanded in recent years to whistleblowing.

Members of the group have delivered short courses and seminars and undertaken consultancy projects.  Academics have worked with a number of organisations to deliver training on access to information, data protection and environmental information regulations. Several members contributed to The Information Sharing Handbook which was published by the Law Society.

Following a recommendation from the Information Commissioner's Office, the group also contributed to a research project into information sharing and management, specifically around the policy area of troubled families.
