Andreas von Staden is interested in the role of law in international relations. In his dissertation, which is scheduled for completion in the academic year 2007-2008, 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 seeks to shed 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.
