European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights

Berlin, Germany

Tanvi will be spending her fellowship year at the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights in Berlin. She will hone her skills in the field of human rights by working on prosecutions for war crimes and crimes against humanity cases within the mandate of the International Crime and Accountability team at the Center.

Tanvi’s interest in human rights and their interaction with the constitutional framework, is reflected in her work experience. After completing her undergraduate law degree from NALSAR, Hyderabad (India) in 2018, Tanvi worked as a judicial clerk at the Supreme Court of India and subsequently practised in a constitutional and criminal law chamber in New Delhi, India. She has worked with the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice, NYU School of Law, examining legal frameworks to prevent human rights violations, as also with the constitution building programme at the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance. At HLS, apart from taking various courses that examined the legal framework of human rights from various lenses, Tanvi was also an executive board member with the HLS Advocate for Human Rights. In one of the projects, she worked with the ABA Center for Human Rights and the Clooney Foundation for Justice to examine fair trial rights in a case in Uganda. She also worked on a project examining the establishment of bail funds in South Africa.
