Dr. Adil Hasan Khan is  currently a McKenzie Fellow at the Melbourne Law School, where his  research seeks to explore the intersections between international law  and disasters, with a focus on South Asia. He completed his PhD in  International Studies, with a specialization in International Law and a  minor in Anthropology and Sociology of Development, at the Graduate  Institute of International and Development Studies (IHEID) in Geneva.   His doctoral dissertation, titled Inheriting Persona: Narrating the Conduct of Third World International Lawyers, narrates  the conduct of two generations of Third World international lawyers in  their struggles to reimagine, re-found, and alternatively authorize  international law, and identifies the defining struggle of the Third  World in international law as being over temporal transmissions or  inheritance. He was a Residential Institute Fellow at the Institute for  Global Law and Policy (IGLP), Harvard Law  School during 2016–2017 and a Junior Visiting Fellow at the Institute  for Human Sciences (IWM), Vienna in 2015-2016..
