Chiteisri Devi previously worked as a researcher at the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Rule of Law Programme, Asia based in Singapore where she, inter alia managed country profiles, conceptualized and developed its pan-asian Environmental Law Talks and edited its publication Rule of Law: Perspectives from Asia. Prior to this, she worked as a legal officer to Paryavaran Mitra, an environmental NGO based in Gujarat, India where she carried out fieldwork towards gathering evidence for pro bono litigation against defaulting Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) projects. From 2006–2011, her work experiences with environmental NGOs such as Environment Support Group (2006), Tarun Bharat Sangh (2008 and 2009) and Centre for Science and Environment (2010) affirmed her interests in law with environmentalism, whilst broadening her outlook towards understanding its linkages to gender issues and overall sustainable development.
