Personal profile

Research

I research the legalisation and judicialisation of politics and the politics of international law, focusing on 1) transitional justice theory; 2) the International Criminal Court (ICC) and other international justice institutions; and 3) African government relations with international courts.

My new book studies the impact of ICC involvement on peace processes in Kenya and Uganda, The International Criminal Court and Peace Processes in Africa: Judicialising Peace (Routledge, 2018). It formulates a theory about when and how ICC involvement harms a peace process as well as when and how such international judicialisation allows a political settlement to take place.

Africa and the Backlash Against International Courts, co-written with Peter Brett, will be out in July 2020.

This academic year (2019/2020) I am teaching International Law for the Social Sciences (BA); International Institutions and Global Governance (BA); Human Rights (MA); and Case Study Methods (MA).
