Welcome 2017-2018 IGLP Residential Fellows!

Luca Bonadiman, Jean Grosdidier and Arm Tungnirun will join us in Cambridge as the 2017-2018 IGLP Residential Fellows.

Luca Bonadiman (Italy) was recently awarded his PhD from the School of Law of City University of Hong Kong. His doctoral dissertation, titled The Historiographical Turn in Human Rights: A Postmodern Inquiry in Six Stories, critically engages with the recent historiographical debate about human rights’ origins and histories. While at IGLP he will continue his research in the fields of international law, human rights, postcolonial studies, critical legal studies, legal and political philosophies, and history of ideas. 

Jean Grosdidier (France) is a Ph.D. candidate at Sciences Po Law School (Paris, France). He has previously studied at the University of Paris II Panthéon-Assas, Paris West University Nanterre La Défense and Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS). Jean’s doctoral research engages with dominant legal and economic reactions to the Euro crisis and explores what he calls “monetary constitutionalism”. While at IGLP he will continue his work tracing the constitutional relations between money and debt, analysizing how the Euro is shaped by a constitutional framework that distinguishes monetary policy from economic policies. 

Arm Tungnirun (Thailand) is a doctoral candidate at Stanford Law School and a lecturer of law at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, Thailand. For his research, he conducts fieldwork and in-depth interviews to critically explore the emergence of transnational corporate lawyers and their practices in Myanmar, while taking into account comparative perspectives from past scholarship on the globalization of law and the development of the corporate legal sector in other emerging economies such as China and India.
