Introducing Sumedha Choudhury

IMG20200614201424~4It is our great pleasure to introduce our new IntLawGrrls contributor Sumedha Choudhury. After completing her undergraduate from National Law University and Judicial Academy, Assam, India with a specialization in International Law and Human Rights, Sumedha Choudhury pursued an LLM in International Law from South Asian University, New Delhi, India. After her LLM she joined UNHCR, India as an Assistant Research Coordinator (Intern) for seven months, June 2019 to December 2019. Since February 2020, she is engaged with UNHCR as an RSD (Refugee Status Determination) Assistant. Sumedha has previously interned with Asian African Legal Consultative Organization (AALCO) and Indian Society of International Law (ISIL) as a research assistant. Having born and raised in the Northeastern region of India, witnessing insurgency and the protracted refugee situation, her decision to engage with the nature of forced displacement was a conscious one. She plans to continue her efforts for the upliftment of asylum seekers and refugees.

Heartfelt welcome!
