Professor Hasan joined the Department of Law and Legal Studies of Carleton University as an Instructor-I in July 2020. He has a Ph.D. in Law from Osgoode Hall Law School [2020], an MA in Legal Studies from Carleton University [2013], and LL.B with honours and LL.M from the University of Dhaka Law Faculty [2005]. Before moving to Canada, Professor Hasan taught undergrad and graduate courses in two Bangladeshi Law Schools. He has experience in policy research that he gathered from working with the Centre for International Governance Innovation [CIGI], a think-tank organization based in Waterloo, Ontario. He has been a resident fellow for two years as part of CIGI’s International Law Research Program doctoral fellowship for three years.

Professor Hasan’s Ph.D. research focused on the interests of Indigenous peoples in the environmental decision-making process in resource development projects and how Indigenous peoples and other disadvantaged communities in the global South react in a mining conflict situation. Taking an open-pit coal project in Bangladesh which was being developed by a transnational corporation and stopped by a subsequent social movement in protesting the corporation’s activity, his research also explored the various dynamics of corporation’s corrupt actions both in the home-state [England] and host-state [Bangladesh].

Professor Hasan’s future research will focus on toxic colonialism and the state’s responsibility to regulate corporations. He is a social activist and advocate for the rights of Indigenous peoples, racial and ethnic minorities. He enjoys photography and trekking in the mountains.

Professor Hasan teaches two undergraduate courses at Carleton University:  LAWS 2201 [Persons and Property], and LAWS 4302 [Regulation of Corporate Crime]. More information about these courses is available here: Course Outlines.
