Shreya Atrey's book, 'Intersectional Discrimination', has received the runners-up Peter Birks Book Prize from the Society of Legal Scholars. The prestigious prize recognises two recipients annually for outstanding legal scholarship.
Shreya's monograph explores why intersectional discrimination should exist as a unique category in discrimination law. The book explains the theoretical, conceptual, and doctrinal roots of intersectional discrimination. Shreya applies central concepts and tools in discrimination law such as grounds, direct and indirect discrimination, comparison, and remedies to intersectional claims.
Further to this recent success, Shreya has also recently received a British Academy/Leverhulme Small Research Grant for her project titled 'Equality Law in Times of Crisis'.
