Current Research

My research areas are international relations and comparative politics with interests in international and comparative law, international organizations, negotiations, conflict, non-state actors, and post-conflict reconstruction. In particular, I am interested in understanding the process and outcomes of constitutional negotiations after conflict: under what conditions are boilerplate articles adjusted to fit local interests? Which actors' preferences are prioritized, particularly when international organizations are involved? Ultimately, does the involvement of third parties in the constitutional design process  contribute to a more durable peace?
