He is currently finalizing a book entitled After Adjudication: Judicial Remedies for Non-Compliance in International Law, to come out with Cambridge University Press in 2018. Following the completion of his book, he will be focusing his research on the transformation of international economic law in response to pressures for it to balance the protection offered to the interests of transnational economic agents with the protection of other interests, as well as of immaterial values.
