Juliette Duara is a Senior Fellow at the Kenan Institute for Ethics. Her current work involves comparative investigations into the implementation of human rights standards in Asian jurisdictions. Most recently this project has included research into human rights issues related to appropriations of land without adequate notice or compensation to affected populations, i.e. the “land grab” issue. Juliette, who is especially interested in the gendered implications of human rights violations, has previously worked on women and inheritance in colonial Asia, and proportionality and gender equality adjudication in India. Juliette has an M.A. in Asian Studies from Stanford, a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School, and a Ph.D. in Law from the National University of Singapore Faculty of Law.
