I am a Professor of Political Science with concurrent appointment at the Law School at the University of Notre Dame. I specialize in international law, international courts, international dispute resolution, territorial and maritime sovereignty, the Islamic legal tradition, Islamic international law, and Islamic constitutionalism. My 2023 book (with Krista E. Wiegand, Oxford University Press),The Peaceful Resolution of Territorial and Maritime Disputes, focuses on the management of interstate conflicts over territory and maritime areas via peaceful means such as adjudication, arbitration, mediation, and negotiations.
Born in Toruń, Poland, I received legal education at the University of Nicholas Copernicus (Poland), Jean Monnet Center for European Studies, and the University of Cambridge. My most prominent publications include
a 2020 book with Oxford University Press, Islamic Law States and International Law: Peaceful Settlement of Disputes, which
examines differences and similarities between the Islamic legal tradition and the classical international law, especially in the context of dispute settlement. My 2011 book was published in Cambridge University Press: Domestic Law Goes Global: Legal Traditions and International Courts (with Sara McLaughlin Mitchell).
