Henrietta’s PhD research title is ‘An assessment of the legal regulation surrounding English political deceit’, where she is supervised by Professor Thom Brooks and Dr Karamvir Chadha. Her thesis draws on inter-disciplinary methodology from law, politics, and philosophy to fully analyse the nature of modern English political deceit and assess avenues of potential legal regulation. What her research aims to do, is offer a fresh and comprehensive perspective on regulating English political deceit, with the aim of recommending how the law should reform.
