Department of Justice, Law & Criminology
Currently, I am Assistant Professor of Justice, Law and Society at American University. I have both a PhD in modern European history and a JD in law from Stanford University. My approach to issues of law and policy reflects this inter-disciplinary background. I am less interested in formal legal doctrine than in how law relates to its context (e.g. social, intellectual, and political). Previously, I was the co-director of the Carnegie Endowment’s Comparative Citizenship Project and an associate with the Endowment’s International Migration Policy Program. My current research interests include migration, political ethics, citizenship and international politics.
