McKenzie Postdoctoral Fellow
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..
