This thesis reviews the contribution of the authors listed publications to a legal perspective on the issues surrounding access to social citizenship for social security claimants. The thesis establishes how the author's published work has provided a significant and coherent contribution to the field, bringing a doctrinal and empirical legal perspective to analyse the detail and workings of legislation dealing with issues related to social security law, with a focus on: the specifics of the legal standards and requirements that comprise the rules governing entitlement to social security benefits and access to those entitlements; expanding a rights-based dimension to social security entitlements, utilising legal concepts of human rights and equality law and applying them to the concept of social citizenship; and developing - within and beyond this - participative concepts of access to justice.
