Postdoctoral Fellow Neha Mishra Awarded 2019 Harold Luntz Research Prize for Doctoral Thesis ‘When Data Flows Across Borders: Aligning International Trade Law with Internet Policy Objectives’
CIL Postdoctoral Fellow Neha Mishra has been awarded the 2019 Harold Luntz Research Prize for her doctoral thesis ‘When Data Flows Across Borders: Aligning International Trade Law with Internet Policy Objectives’. The prize is awarded annually to the best thesis in Melbourne Law School. In her thesis, Dr Mishra investigated how international trade law applies to government restrictions on data flows and whether it can be aligned with their internet policy objectives. She demonstrated that such an alignment can be achieved by interpreting, applying and reforming trade rules consistent with fundamental principles of internet governance. Dr Mishra was supervised by Professor Tania Voon and Professor Andrew D Mitchell at Melbourne Law School.
