International law, international courts, territorial disputes

The defining theme of my research is the linkage between domestic legal systems, international law, and international courts. In general, my scholarship bridges the gap between International Relations and International Law literatures by empirically assessing the relationship between legal institutions – both domestic and international – and political phenomena, such as countries’ behavior. My work focuses on how domestic legal traditions, such as civil, common, and Islamic law impact the way that countries behave on the international arena, particularly towards international courts and other venues for peaceful resolution of disputes (a book co-authored with Sara McLaughlin Mitchell, Domestic Law Goes Global: Legal Traditions and International CourtsCambridge University Press, 2011) My research agenda covers several international courts, such as the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, as well as several substantive areas of international law, especially the law of territorial sovereignty, diplomatic immunity, and human rights.
