Research Interests:

My interests revolve around current dynamics of change in the discourse and practice of international relations, with a particular focus on the current reconfiguration of mechanism of international security and governance. Recent research has dealt with the emergence of new forms of multilateralism and their impact on the UN system. I am now writing a book on the notions of universalism and particulrism in Asian relations theory.
