IGLP Awards Research Grant to FIU Law Professor Cyra Choudhury

Florida International University College of Law Professor Cyra Choudhury has been awarded a Santander & IGLP (Institute for Global Law & Policy) Doha Collaborative Research Grant from Harvard Law School to support her research initiative,”Avenues of Legal Reform of Transnational and International Labor Laws in the Gulf and Saudi Arabia.”

The grant will enable Professor Choudhury to travel to South Asia to study male and female laborers who work in the Middle East, with a particular purpose of describing these experiences in order to inform a legal reform proposal.

“I’m delighted to receive this grant from Harvard which will allow me to travel to do field work on the legal framework regulating labor migration from India and Bangladesh to the Middle East.  Receiving a grant given on a competitive basis is an honor and I hope that it will spark an ongoing collaboration with other IGLP scholars working in the same vein,” said Choudhury.
