New visitor at iCourts - Steven McDowell

Steven McDowell, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Notre Dame, will be visiting iCourts from 4 March-1 April 2017. During his stay, he will be working on and presenting a project entitled, “Tangible Salience, Political Shocks, and the Timing of Litigation In Interstate Territorial and Maritime Disputes.” The project investigates the micro-level events and conditions that determine why states involved in ongoing territorial and maritime disputes choose international courts and arbitral panels to resolve their claims.
