My main interests concern the use of violence, international criminal law, human rights and the theory of international law, including the issues of international law which have systemic effects.


I work on two projects. The first concerns non-state actors and the use of violence. I'm investigating whether the state-centered regime on the use of violence is eroding and if it is possible to imagine a public-law system where states are not the only ones allowed to use military violence. This project relates to my PhD project, which was a conceptual history of neutrality. I also participate with two articles in a forthcoming commentary on the aggression crime, published by Cambridge University Press.


The second project is called "Global law, local lives", which involves a number of colleagues in different fields of law. The purpose is to investigate how non-domestic norms -- formal and informal -- affect the lives of ordinare residents in Sweden.


Prior to my current employment, I worked for eleven years as international law adviser at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and during this time I participated and represented the Swedish government in multilateral negotiations in various subjects and gave advice to the government in many international law issues. I have also worked in Uganda for three years as a consultant on transitional law and as a political advisor to the EU.


Since 1988, I have published some sixty works in international law, including the prohibition of violence, international criminal law, self-determination, state immunity, and international law.


I have held visiting positions at Harvard Law School, the European University Institute and the University of Melbourne and at two Ugandan universities.


I am currently the head of subject for international law and course director for the course International Law and the Global Economy. A previous vice-dean for research affairs, I am a present member of the faculty board. I am the chair of the Swedish Research Council's review panel for Philosophy and Law and a member of a number of advisory boards and editorial boards of scholarly institutes and journals. In addition, I am a member of two advisory committees at the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and of one governmental legislative committee.


My most important assignment is being the Director of the Stockholm Center for International Law and Justice (www.scilj.se).
