Tarunabh Khaitan (2004, BCL) honoured with India UK Achievers Award

Exeter alumnus Professor Tarunabh Khaitan (2004, BCL) has recently received an India UK Achievers Award. This year, the Achievers Honours was part of the British Council’s India/UK Together programme to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Indian independence and the UK and India’s cultural and educational ties. Seventy-five awards were granted to Indian students and alumni who pursued studies in the UK, who “are some of the brightest young minds in the India-UK corridor.”

Professor Khaitan is a Rhodes Scholar who completed his BCL, MPhil, and DPhil in Law at Exeter College. He is now the Head of Research at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights here at Oxford. He also holds the positions of Professor of Public Law and Legal Theory at the Faculty of Law, Fellow at Mansfield College, Honorary Professorial Fellow at Melbourne Law School, and Visiting Professor of Law at Harvard Law School. Professor Khaitan specialises in legal theory, constitutional studies, and discriminatory law. His work has been cited in several supreme courts, including the Indian Supreme Court and the Canadian Suprime Court, as well as the European Court of Human Rights. The India UK Achievers Honours recognises Khaitan’s exceptional work as an educator.

Exeter College warmly congratulates Professor Khaitan on this extraordinary achievement!
