My current research interest intersects at Law and International Relations. With the law, I seek to understand comparative constitutional developments, international criminal law, human rights, and public international law broadly interpreted to include good governance and international justice. With International Relations, I seek to narrate how states interact in diplomacy. My policy interest verges at the understanding of American foreign policy and EU foreign policy towards Africa on a range of issues from terrorism to human rights; politics, development, conflicts, rule of law, and how multilateral institutions matter in addressing these challenges globally, and specifically, for Africa.

My research, in general, is on comparative politics, with a specific focus on the governance of international migration, diversity and citizenship. This has classified into two main perspectives. On one hand, how and why the politics of migration and diversity vary from time to time and place to place, asking who influences dominant perspectives, when and how. On the other hand, the implications and impacts of governance of irregular migration and refugee reception in Southern Europe and the broader Mediterranean region. Most recently, this has led me to begin exploring the relationships between humanitarianism and border security in contexts of irregular migration and refugee protection.
