Latest Alumni Publications - Ram Mashru, MSc CI 2012-2013

Read Ram Mashru's chapter in this book on human rights in India, edited and published by Amnesty International's Strategic Studies division.

Ram's essay addresses a paradox at the centre of India's normative foreign policy: how can we square India's growing influence as a provider of overseas development assistance with its continued reluctance to promote rights abroad?

The book features contributions by both practitioners and academics, from within India and abroad, including Meenakshi Ganguly (South Asia Director at Human Rights Watch), Sanjoy Banerjee (Professor of International Relations at San Francisco University) and C. Raja Mohan (Distinguished Fellow at the Observer Research Foundation).  

Ram graduated from the MSc in Contemporary India in 2013, with distinction, and currently works as an international affairs consultant at Oxford Analytica. His book, Human InSecurity: Fear, Deprivation and Abuse in India, was published by The Diplomat in 2013.
