Before joining Leicester in August 2007, Eki taught Law at the University of Kent. Eki has also worked in the City of London in commercial insurance, and has practised Law in Nigeria.
Eki’s research field is African States and Public International Law.
She is concerned with re-examining the principle of non-intervention in African states by considering Governmental Illegitimacy in International Law, the Use of Force in International relations, military humanitarian intervention, and intervention in civil conflicts. The organisations that she has been examining are the United Nations and the regional organisation for the African region, the African Union.
Her interest in governmental illegitimacy, and regional and international organisations, has led to her current research on International Business Transactions and the Corruption of Foreign Public Officials, focusing on the Extractive Industries in Africa.
