His doctoral project is supervised by Prof. Dr. Stephan Schill (Professor of International and Economic Law and Governance), Prof. Dr. Aukje van Hoek (Professor of Private International Law and Civil Procedure) and Dr. Geraldo Vidigal (Assistant Professor in International Trade Law and Public International Law).
He received his LL.M. in International and European Union Law from Erasmus University Rotterdam (cum laude) with the first rank in the International Law track. He was also the first-rank holder in the 5-year B.A., LL.B. (Honours) degree from the Damodaram Sanjivayya National Law University in India.
Debadatta's research focuses on state obligations on human rights due diligence legislation on translational corporations and their global value chains, both in International Law and European Union Law. This covers access to justice in transnational litigation/arbitration for contractual and non-contractual obligations of corporations. This project combines public and private international law analysis for looking into the nature of regulatory reach of states through mandatory human rights due diligence that has extraterritorial effects, and into human rights due diligence as a ground of access to justice in the home state.
