Principal Investigator | Member of Directorate
In my international law research, I am interested in the containment of armed violence (military force) in international relations. In addition to ius ad bellum, ius in bello (often labelled as international humanitarian law) forms a central part of my research. As such, research on arms control law has been a key area of my work. By researching legal issues, I hope to contribute to strengthening norms against chemical and biological weapons. In addition, I address legal questions of collective security from the perspective of the history of international law as well as fact-finding in armed conflicts.
