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 these corresponding 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.
