Current research topic:
The topic relates to the interpretation of treaties and the unity of international law. The study critically examines the nature and interaction of international criminal law with the international customary law of immunities. The study thus determines whether there is a cohesion or rather fragmentation in the international legal system.

The jurisprudence of International Criminal Court (ICC) visavis immunuties of state officials is respectively examined through the lens of international law's normative conflicts and the application of rules of treaty interpretation - as a potential tool for addressing such conflicts. Analysis of the study is therefore centered on the interpretation mechanisms of the ICC's founding treaty, namely: the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (1998), with reference to treaty interpretation rules under the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties (1969).
