Indira Boutier is currently a third-year PHD student in International Human Rights Law at the Institute of Commonwealth Studies (University of London) and in cotutelle with the Centre d’Etudes et de Recherches Internationales et Communautaires (Aix-Marseille University). She completed a B.A in Law (Aix-Marseille University), an LLM in International Relations, Law and Security (Strathclyde University) and a Master in International and European Law with a specialisation in Action and Humanitarian Law (Aix-Marseille University).

Her thesis focuses on the (in)visibilization of minority groups before judicial Courts and in judicial decisions. She examines how judicial courts make discriminations visible; or on the contrary, heighten discrimination already faced by minority groups. The thesis combines a case study on India with an analysis of two regional systems: the European Court of Human Rights and the Inter-American system of Human Rights. It advances the hypothesis that the absence of a regional human rights system in India increases the difficulties of the Indian judiciary when dealing with discriminated minority groups.

Indira is currently also a Case Manager at Aix Global Justice, an International Human Rights Law clinic based in Aix-en-Provence, where her specializations include human rights violation, minority rights, extradition and international criminal law in Europe and Asia.
