Current Research

Deep’s current research is titled, ‘Transnational Arbitral Legal Orders: Finding Justice in a Private Normative Order’. His research aims to establish the legitimacy of international arbitration as an autonomously functioning dispute resolution method capable of rendering justice beyond the state. Towards this end, his research takes a unique pluralistic jurisprudential and structural functionalist approach. This research will contribute to the methodological and theoretical literature of international commercial arbitration which even after all these years of existence has not seen requisite developments. Additionally, it aims to establish a verifiable and justiciable global model of dispute resolution.
