I’m starting this blog as I am about to return to university and embark on a DPhil, so I’m aiming for an exploratory feel.

Thematically, the blog will focus on law, society and development.  These are my core interests.

In addition, I will try to include posts on my unofficial DPhil motto: Tool Up, Dig Deep, and Look Out!

Tool Up–Master research methods and its tools

Dig Deep–Read those classic academic works you’ve always meant to read

Look Out–Don’t get lost in the Ivory Tower, keep an eye on the real world

The first two of these themes were the advice of a senior colleague, whose thoughtfulness I admire and who has written one of my favourite articles on development.  The third is my own doing.  Lets see if this works.
