He intends to examine the international legal order from substantive and philosophical perspectives, and to research current and pressing issues in the areas of international humanitarian law, international criminal law, and global governance.

He hopes that this will empower him to advocate reforms to the international legal system, which respond to global challenges and promote international peace and cooperation.
