Graduate Associate

Andreas von Staden

Ph.D. (2009)

Robertson Hall

Andreas's principal research interests revolve around the role of law in international relations. In his dissertation, defended in October 2009, he addresses the record of compliance with the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. Combining legal and political science perspectives with statistical analysis and country case studies, the dissertation sheds light on the causal mechanisms underlying the variance in state responses to adverse judgments rendered by the Court. Other current research concerns the legal regulation of transnational investments through bilateral investment treaties (BITs), and the political and legal function of rules of exception in international economic law.

Before coming to Princeton, he worked for several years as a strategy consultant at Accenture, where he focused on the financial services industry. A native of Hamburg, Germany, Andreas holds master's degrees from Hamburg University, Yale, and Princeton, and is a three-time attender of the Hague Academy of International Law.
