Areas of Interest

My doctoral dissertation, entitled 'Debating Development as a Human Right: a rhetorical genealogy of the right to development at the United Nations Commission on Human Rights', focuses on the struggles and controversies underlying the emergence of a particular conceptual innovation in the politico-legal setting of the Commission on Human Rights in the 1970s, namely the human right to development.

Research Areas

My research areas include global conceptual history; rhetoric and conceptual change in international relations and organizations, especially the United Nations; parliamentary rules and procedures in international organizations, with particular regard to the UN General Assembly; human rights and development; international development law and politics; international human rights law and politics.
