David Lowe

Principal Lecturer in Law, Liverpool John Moores University

Having had an enjoyable 27 year police career I have now established a new career in academia where I am a principal lecturer at Liverpool John Moores University's Law School teaching and researching terrorism, security, policing, human rights, criminal law and public law. I have a number of books, journal articles and book chapters on terrorism and policing already published, with other research due to be published soon.

As a result of my research and experience in policing, my services to provide expert commentary for local, national and international media is frequently requested. I have appeared on the BBC radio and TV, Sky news, Al Jazeera, France 24, DW Germany, Russia Today, TRT World (Turkey) and Al Arabyia television LBC and Voice of Russia. I have also provided commentary for UK's press including The Guardian and Daily Mirror as well as Slovakia's Pravda Austria's Der Presse and the US's Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and New York Times amongst others. These have been on issues on terrorism, security, human rights and European Arrest Warrants. I regularly review the newspapers for City Talk.

I am currently an external examiner at Teeside University on their police foundation programmes, Coventry University's undergraduate law degree programme and the University of Central Lancashire's MSc programme on terrorism studies.

I am a member of the Liverpool Law Society's Criminal Practice Committee and an academic fellow of the Inner Temple.

I am currently assisting Merseyside Police's Prevent team on issues related to radicalisation to extremist causes.
