Khushboo Chauhan is currently working as an Assistant Professor (Law) at Christ Academy Institute of Law, Bengaluru, India. I was awarded the Ph.D. and M. Phil. Degree by the Centre for the Study of Law and Governance, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi, India. My doctoral thesis titled “Genocides: Law, Politics and History”, aimed to study genocide through the conjoint lenses of law, politics and history. There is an intention to investigate how the different discourses (legal, political and historic) give meanings, definitions and understanding to the term genocide and even the Holocaust and how they are used and condition (or limit and restrict or contribute) to the practical fulfilment of human rights in relation to the issue of genocide. I also hold a LL.M. in International Law and a LL. B. degree from Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla, India and a B.A. in Political Science and Psychology from St. Bede’s College, Shimla. My research interests include Genocide and Holocaust Studies, International Law, International Organisations, Human rights, International politics, Migration. Public Policy and Governance with emphasis on its legal dimensions, decentralization, global and local governance and civil society.
