Research interests

Teng Guan’s research interests are primarily in the area of sports law, specifically within the area of advancement or promotion of equal opportunity for participation in sports, the interaction between soft and hard law which is also known as the process of ‘juridification’. The latter has increasingly become an important area of debate, considering the increasing intervention and ‘encroachment’ of legal sphere into areas which would otherwise been governed by ‘social’, soft or informal rules. His other research interests involves the area of international business, trade and commerce, and again, primarily analysing and examining the inherent tension between international ‘legally’ or ‘non-legally’ conventions and domestic law within countries.

Areas of research supervision

Teng Guan's area of research supervision includes the area of commercial and sports law, and he has successfully supervised two students to completion. The first thesis relates to the ongoing issues relating to the ‘Host Country Contracts in the Energy Sector: Azerbaijan and Turkey case study’ while the other examines the ‘Emergence to Tax Regimes in the EU and the process of Europeanisation’. At the moment, Teng Guan is actively supervising/adviser to a number of research students from the Anglia Law School, Lord Ashcroft International Business School and the Faculty of Science and Technology.
