Doctoral research

PhD title Public Private Partnership at WTO Dispute Settlement: Developing Countries’ Perspective
Supervisors Dr Luca Rubini and Dr Rilka Dragneva-Lewers

Research

My research deals with the domestically formed public private partnerships (PPPs) and the WTO Dispute Settlement Mechanism. More precisely, I am looking at these PPPs as a strategy to assist developing countries to overcome capacity challenges they face at the WTO. India is my case - study.

I am conducting this research with a combination of library and empirical based research. The interesting part of my research is that I get to speak with the practitioners working in international trade law for seeking practical insights and observations. I have conducted around 20 semi-structured interviews at Geneva, Brussels and India, and few more are scheduled for the forthcoming months.
