research overview

  • My research has largely been in the area of American national security law and criminal law and procedure, with an emphasis on criminal prosecutions and foreign policy. I have also written about immigration law's role in driving foreign policy. More recently, I have also explored international criminal law and the Arab world, as well as the laws of the Arab countries regarding terrorism. My most current research is a book-length project reviewing the history and content of American law as it relates to the question of Palestine.
