Current Research Projects

  • The failure to implement international and European norm-setting duties in the Swiss legal system (SNF-Ambizione, February 2017 – July 2017, some transferrable funds until July 2018).
  • Domestic Failures to Legislate for Human Rights – A Typology of Domestic Avenues of Redress and How to Enhance Them (individual research)
  • Bypassing the Nation State? How Swiss Cantonal Parliaments Deal with International Obligations (planned pluridisciplinary project with Prof. Martino Maggetti).
  • Economic, social and cultural rights in international criminal law / in relation to armed conflicts and transitional justice: the topic is keeping me busy and will probably continue to do so for years to come.
