Aishani Gupta is the current Research Associate at the IJHR Clinic. She completed her LL.B with honours in India, and holds two masters degrees in international law from New York University and the European University Institute. Throughout her career, she has researched and worked in human rights law for which she has used comparative and international law perspectives. Her work has consistently dealt with using law as a tool for social change and finding ways to understand how theoretical frameworks bear on the real world.

Aishani is interested in understanding the impact of international law on individuals and changes that have occurred in understanding human rights law due to globalization. To further her understanding in practical terms at both the domestic and international levels, she has clerked at the Supreme Court of India and the International Court of Justice (the principal UN judicial organ). These experiences provided her with significant insight about the way in which the international law regime impacts individuals and how that impact can be increased.
