Parvathi Menon studied law at Symbiosis Law School, India. She holds two LL.Ms, one from the London School of Economics and Political Science (in public international law) and another from Harvard Law School. Before joining the institute, she taught public international law and legal theory in India and West Africa. She went on a fellowship to Helsinki to work at the Erik Castren Institute of International Law. She has also worked for various regional organizations in West Africa.

Her PhD research explores the relationship between international law and its ‘others’—minorities, a ‘people’—towards constructing a genealogy of the statist paradigm. Her research interests focus on general international law, legal theory, international criminal law, laws of war and postcolonial theory.
