Biography

Amlanika Bora serves as an Assistant Professor of Law at the School of Legal Studies and Governance, Vidyashilp University in Bangalore, and is currently pursuing her Ph.D. at the West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences (WBNUJS), Kolkata. She earned her B.A. LL.B. and LL.M. degrees from the Centre for Juridical Studies, Dibrugarh University, Assam, where she achieved the distinction of being the LL.M. batch’s university topper. Bora cleared UGC-NET and was awarded the Junior Research Fellowship (Law). Her previous academic roles have included positions at REVA University, Presidency University, CMR University, CHRIST (Deemed to be University), and the Bangalore Institute of Legal Studies, as well as serving as visiting faculty at Ramaiah College of Law.

Bora is the author of “UGC-NET/JRF (Law) Examination Solved Papers- Subjectwise” and “Gendering Public Policy in a Global Context,” both published by Central Law Publications. Her significant contributions include research on gender-based violence in India, which informed the report to the 50th session of the Human Rights Council in 2022 by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, and inputs for the “Draft Guidelines on Deinstitutionalization, including in emergencies,” for the United Nations Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2022. Both contributions were featured on the website of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Her active engagement with the international legal community includes participation in the "Virtual Expert Workshop on Good Practices in Ensuring Access to Medicines, Vaccines, and Other Health Products," in response to Human Rights Council Resolution 50/13 in 2023, and the Asia and the Pacific Regional Seminar on the Contribution of Development to the Enjoyment of All Human Rights in Bangkok, Thailand, in 2023.

Bora's scholarly work has earned her the Best Paper Award at CHRIST (Deemed to be University), Bangalore, in 2022 for her research on "Access to Environmental Justice in India: Through the Lens of National Green Tribunal," and at the International E-Conference organized by Navrachana University in 2022 for her analysis on "The National Green Tribunal of India vis-à-vis Principles of International Environmental Law."

Focusing on sanitation law, policy framework in India, human rights, and gender justice, Bora has authored approximately 12 articles in reputed journals and presented about 35 papers at various international and national conferences and seminars.
