Chris Kendall is Associate Professor of Politics and Government, specializing in International Relations. He earned his law degree from UC Berkeley (Boalt Hall) and practiced law in New York before completing his PhD in politics at Princeton University. His teaching is informed by research interests at the intersection of international relations, comparative politics, and judicial processes. Professor Kendall is particularly interested in how developing states internalize norms governing interstate behavior while at the same time transforming those norms to suit local exigencies. His current research examines how judicial politics in developing states shape and constrain the enforcement of international human rights commitments at the local level.
