Meet the Fellows: Kiran Banerjee

The PCJ Society invites you to a semester-long speaker series with our Trudeau fellows! It is a wonderful opportunity to hear these scholars talk about their research and career path, tips for success and address student questions (grad school!)


Kiran Banerjee is a Vanier Scholar and doctoral candidate in Political Science at the University of Toronto and holds a M.A. in Political Science from the University of Chicago. His research interests include human rights, citizenship, immigration and migration, the history of political thought, political philosophy and legal theory. Banerjee’s dissertation examines the relationship of citizenship, human rights, and territoriality in the context of contemporary international relations, with a particular focus on statelessness. The project contributes to the turn to the problem of membership and political exclusion in international political theory that has begun to take seriously the challenge of radical exclusion posed by statelessness and the denial of citizenship. The aim of the dissertation is to articulate a novel account of statelessness as domination and with that to lay the foundation for addressing the claims to justice of stateless persons. Banerjee’s recent work has been published in Refuge: Canada’s Periodical on Refugees, the Journal of International Law and International Relations, and he is co-editor and contributor to a forthcoming volume from University of Toronto Press.

Morden will be speaking tomorrow (Friday, November 21st) at 2pm in the Rigby Room of St. Hilda’s College, 44 Devonshire Place, Toronto, ON.
