Research Interests

My research interests span widely across the disciplines of Public Law, Political Science, and Anthropology.

I am working on the Legal Foundations of Authority, and notably Authoritarian Constitutionalism, from a comparative, historical and critical perspective.

By examining the question from an Asia/Europe or East/West perspective, I endeavor to question established dichotomies between Asian and Western understandings of the Rule of Law and authoritarianism.

I am working on a conceptual tool aiming to replace unidimensional dichotomies by an integrated system of multidimensional continuums.

The practical implications of my research are manifold :  by breaking dichotomies that work as knowledge barriers, I strive to contribute to address questions such as the crisis of liberal democracy, environment-related issues including pandemics, and rising global inequalities.
