Dr Dominic Burbidge helps run the Programme for the Foundations of Law and Constitutional Government within the Faculty of Law. He received his doctorate at Oriel College, Oxford, and his masters at St Antony's College, before working as a post-doctoral researcher at Princeton University. Dr Burbidge's research specialises on devolution, local government and constitutional law, under the lens of citizen trust and social capital. He has particular expertise in Kenya's new constitution, which involves a radical decentralisation of government functions.
