In this episode of EJIL: Live! the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal, Professor Joseph Weiler, speaks with Bhupinder Chimni, Professor of International Law at the School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi, India. The interview, rather than discussing a specific article, looks at the life and the life work of Professor B.S. Chimni.
The conversation ranges across many subjects, including the influences that shaped Prof. Chimni’s life and thought, the meaning, significance and influence of the TWAIL movement, legal education in India, his writings on international refugee law and scholarly projects for the future. EJIL vol. 29(2) features a review essay by Dr Akbar Rasulov on Professor Chimni’s most recent book, “International Law and World Order: A Critique of Contemporary Approaches”, which viewers are also invited to read.
