Abhijeet Shrivastava

Researcher, Central Asia Programme

Abhijeet joined the Platform for Peace and Humanity in July 2022 and is excited to contribute to the Platform’s upcoming Programmatic work focused on the Central Asian region.

Abhijeet is a fifth-year student of the B.A., LL.B. (Hons.) program at Jindal Global Law School, O.P. Jindal Global University, India. Throughout law school, he has engaged in research, mooting, and strategic clinical work involving public international law controversies. He is also the Editor-in-Chief at the Jindal Forum for International and Economic Laws. He hopes to interrogate the promise of international law in relation to lived experiences in India, which similarly motivated him to support the Platform’s Central Asia program, given that the region remains outside the mainstream discourse of international legal and security issues.
