His research concerns what international prosecutors have considered in the exercise of their discretion and, more importantly, why. His research, based largely on interviews conducted with current and former prosecutors who held the rank of Senior Trial Attorney and higher, draws upon ideology and myth to identify assumptions about role-identity that have shaped and influenced discretionary conduct.
