Heather Green researches and teaches in public law. Her research interests are in election law, in terms both of its doctrine (in the UK and comparatively) and of its relation to concepts and practices of democracy. Her published work concerns, for example, the limits of legal understandings of universal suffrage; and other problems with the content of statutory regulation of elections. She is currently working on projects concerning the status of voting as a quasi-constitutional right under the Human Rights Act; ideas of publicity and privacy in the law of voting; and the problem of mental incapacity in election law. She is also engaged in work concerning the current programme of reform of election legislation in the UK.
