Research

My research investigates the role of sovereignty and colonialism in the development of international law. I am arguing that the pathos of distance as described by Fredrick Nietzsche played the most prominent role in the development of international law, and the relations between European and Non-European societies, sovereign states is not based on sovereignty but rather debtor-creditor is the most appropriate form of relation which can explain the historical relations between European and Non-European societies and sovereign states.
