Biography

Dr Margaret Liu is a Senior Lecturer in law at Coventry Law School, she joined Coventry University in 2001. Prior to joining Coventry Law School, she was a Senior Lecturer and the Head of Law Department in Shaanxi University College of Business and Law in China, and a Solicitor at Xian ZhenDa Law Firm. Margaret’s expertise is in International Trade Law, International Criminal Law and International Human Rights Law, particularly, in the fields of international commercial activities, and public sector restructuring, regulation and reform, policy management and policy process, including formulation, implementation and evaluation. These include restructuring governmental institutions, new public management, a human rights-based public service, and a consumer orientation on delivery services to the public, which challenge the conventions and policies of constitutional and administrative law.

She has been invited to give many of the keynotes at international conferences and workshops, such as, The 27th International Congress of Administrative Sciences, Abu Dhabi, UAE, entitled The UK Quality of Public Service: A Shift towards a Rights-based Public Service?; The IIAS 3rd International Conference, Monterrey, Mexico, entitled Is the Information Commissioner a Promoter of Transparency for Better Governance?; The First Specialised International Conference of International Institute of Administrative Sciences (IIAS), Sunningdale, UK, entitled The Rise of Cadre Entrepreneurs in China – Elite Transformation?, and so forth.
