Biography

Dr. Nayar obtained his undergraduate law degree from the University of Leicester (1st Class Hons.) and his Ph.D from the University of Cambridge. His main research interests are in the fields of international law, human rights and development, social movements and theories of non-violent resistance. From 2002-2005, Dr. Nayar was seconded to the Lelio Basso International Foundation in Rome, to initiate and develop the Peoples' Law Programme. The aim of this initiative was to consolidate and elaborate on the theories and practice of alternative, non-institutional 'resistance' law-doings by peoples' movements in struggle, with a special emphasis on the role of Peoples' Tribunals towards this end. In connection with this, Dr. Nayar was a member of the International Coordinating Committee of the World Tribunal on Iraq initiative, and was an active contributor to various 'Social Forum' gatherings. Dr. Nayar teaches in the International Development Law and Human Rights LLM programme.
