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 commercial arbitration as an autonomously functioning dispute resolution method capable of rendering justice. Towards this end, his research takes a unique pluralistic jurisprudential and structural functionalist approach. This research will contribute to the methodological, theoretical and practical literature of international commercial arbitration which even after all these years of existence remains a confined knowledge held within authoritative circles.
