My research interests include: norms and discourse in international relations; international human rights in theory and practice; the influence of non-governmental organizations on state behavior; global justice; how changing ideas about justice take hold in global politics. I am also interested in questions related to documentation of the records of global human rights activism, and questions related to data preservation and use.
