New at the institute: Harshan Kumarasingham
At the institute since February 1st, 2016
Harshan Kumarasingham’s work examines the cultural, constitutional and political history of the decolonisation of the British Empire and subsequent state-building in the Commonwealth. He is particularly interested in Commonwealth constitutionalism and how the Westminster parliamentary system was exported across the world and adapted to conditions very different from the Palace of Westminster. Related to this work is his research into 20th century constitutional and political migrations and connections across the different regions of the Empire and Commonwealth and the role of the Crown.
