Biography

Akbar joined the Uzbek bar in 2003. He holds degrees from the University of World Economy and Diplomacy (Uzbekistan), the University of Essex, the University of Hull, and Harvard Law School. He is a member of the Executive Council of the Asian Society of International Law. He likes green tea and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. 


Research interests

Akbar Rasulov teaches four options in public international law and international economic law on the LLB and the LLM programmes.

His main research interests lie in the area of international law (mainly international law and development, international legal history, and international public order). Sometimes he also tries to moonlight as a legal theorist for reasons he is not entirely sure he can identify. When that happens, he tends to become quite interested in discourse theory, semiotics, and all things post-structuralist. The rest of the time he just sticks to what he likes to believe is law and economics.
