We are delighted by the appointment of Dr Ashwini Vasanthakumar, currently a Lecturer in Political Theory at the University of York, as a Lecturer in the YTL Centre for Politics, Philosophy & Law. Dr Vasanthakumar holds an A.B. in Social Studies from Harvard, a J.D. from Yale, and a D.Phil in Political Theory from Oxford, where she studied as a Canadian Rhodes Scholar. She has previously been a Term Fellow in Political Theory at University College, Oxford and an Assistant Professor and Assistant Dean at the Jindal Global Law School.

Dr Vasanthakumar's research interests are in normative ethics, contemporary political theory, and law. Her work explores questions of political membership and obligation in the context of migration and transnationalism, focusing on the relationship between emigrants and sending states. She also has interests in comparative constitutionalism, especially in the 'global South.'

Professor John Tasioulas, Director of the Yeoh Tiong Lay Centre for Politics, Philosophy & Law said, 'Dr Vasanthakmumar is a marvellous addition to the Centre's team, bringing considerable expertise on a wide range of important topics that cross the boundaries separating law, politics and philosophy'.

The Yeoh Tiong Lay Centre for Politics, Philosophy and Law was founded in 2014 as a focal point for interdisciplinary research in law from the perspective of both philosophy and politics.
