International Dispute Resolution and International Courts; Public International Law; The Legal Profession; Comparative Regional Integration; Sociology of Law
My reseach lies at the crossroads of law and sociology. A focus area is to unveil the socio-political dynamics accounting for the establishment of authority of international courts in regional settings. My interest is to understand the reasons why several regions of the world equipped their systems of regional integration with international judicial bodies, how these institutions develop and function over time, and how these impact on regional integration.
Another area of interest is the role of the legal profession in a number of societal aspects (i.e. the judicialization of international politics, the rise of a digital society, and the development of the welfare state). In this regard, I am conducting a research project (DigiProf) on how the digitalization of the legal field is changing the structure and role of large law firms in contemporary society.
