Geographic focus: International

Thematic interests: International law and organizations, international courts, territorial disputes, comparative law, and peaceful resolution of interstate disputes

Current research:  I am currently working on a book project that explores the intricate relationship between Islamic law and international law in the context of peaceful resolution of international disputes. Why are some Islamic law states attracted to international adjudication and others repeatedly use less formalized methods, such as bilateral negotiations or mediation?
