Dhiraj K M Nainani 羅俊
Dhiraj Nainani completed his LLB and LLM from the London School of Economics and Political Science before joining the University of Hong Kong for his PhD. His thesis looks at the relationship between law and urban spatiality. Specifically, it draws upon theorists like Henri Lefebvre and Michel Foucault and applies their work to a legally and spatially ambivalent place like the ‘infamous’ Chungking Mansions in Hong Kong. In doing so, it aims to show how the law is not just embedded in urban space but also produces and shapes it in many different ways.
