Politics and Government
Chris Kendall’s research interests focus on the intersection of international relations, comparative politics, and judicial processes. He has been examining how judicial politics in developing states shape and constrain the enforcement of international human rights commitments at the local level. This reflects his more general interest in studying how developing nation states internalize norms governing interstate behavior, while at the same time transforming those norms to suit local exigencies. After receiving his J.D., Kendall worked as an associate attorney specializing in international law. At Princeton he completed his dissertation, "Courting Compliance: Judicial Politics as a Constraint on Domestic Enforcement of International Law."
