Dr Ryan Goss is a Senior Lecturer at the ANU Law School with expertise in constitutional law, the overlap between law and politics, and human rights law. Ryan's research examines how democracy functions, what limits are placed on what our governments can do, and what role is played by citizens in a democratic society. This includes examining the role of the High Court in interpreting and applying the Constitution, and the ways in which the Constitution and the law shape contemporary politics and policy. His particular areas of interest include constitutional history, constitutional reform, constitutional rights, and parliamentary and electoral democracy.
