Professional Experience:
I have five years of experience in academic writing or research as part of my MPhil and PhD writing. I was awarded the prestigious Indian Council of Social Science Research's Doctoral Fellowship to facilitate my research at Jawaharlal Nehru University.
I am a research scholar on International Migration and Labour Rights and have submitted my PhD thesis entitled ‘International Law and the Rights of Migrant Workers’ at the Centre for International Legal Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University. I did an analytical study on the factors contributing to anti-immigrations norms and suggested that migration is an enduring activity of human life. In particular, my thesis engages with all the international human rights instruments for the protection of migrant workers and Indian Emigration Law of 1983. With a sample size of domestic migrant workers/ potential domestic workers to the Gulf Cooperation Council from Kerala, it examined loopholes in the Indian Emigration Act of 1983 and found how law restricting emigration rights of women below thirty years in the pretext of preventing sexual exploitation forces them into controlled informality. Thus, emigration restrictions only force the migrants to depend on irregular channels for migration and push them into controlled informality. Therefore, it concludes that restrictions on the mobility rights of people is a violation of international law, and suggests that there is a need for the states to facilitate better bargaining powers to protect the human rights of migrants at the host state. Additionally, it argues, that the international law instruments for the rights of migrant workers endeavours to provide decent working conditions to migrant workers with the cooperation of origin state, destination state, and civil society for the development of friendly policies.
