Dr Himani Bhakuni  


I joined York Law School in April 2022. Before that I was the Assistant Professor of Justice in Global Health Research at University Medical Center, Utrecht University and Lecturer in Law at the Department of Foundations and Methods of Law at Maastricht University.

I completed my PhD at the University of Edinburgh in 2019 and was also awarded a joint doctorate from Tilburg University. I conduct interdisciplinary research within the broad-ranging field of Health, Law, and Society and publish academic work within specific fields of Human Rights, Health Law, Bioethics, Global Health, and Global Justice. I have co-authored several institutional and policy reports on similar issues.

Before moving to Europe, I had completed a judicial clerkship with a High Court Judge in India and had been working as a litigating lawyer. I’ve also provided research support and consultancy to several human rights organisations and NGOs.

These days I lecture in law, global health, human rights, and related fields and occasionally provide consultancies to international organisations.
