Hybrid Justice: The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia
University of Michigan Press, 2014 (with Anne Heindel)
Since 2006, the United Nations and Cambodian government have participated in the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, a hybrid tribunal created to try key Khmer Rouge officials for crimes of the Pol Pot era. Hybrid Justice examines the contentious politics behind the tribunal’s creation, its legal and institutional design, and its function. The Cambodian experience shows some of the promise and many of the challenges of designing and operating a hybrid court and pursuing accountability for mass crimes in general. It carries important lessons for transitional justice and other domains in which the United Nations partners with national governments.
The Limits of Alignment: Southeast Asia and the Great Powers since 1975
Georgetown University Press, 2010
The Limits of Alignment explores how small states and middle powers of Southeast Asia ensure their security in a world where they are overshadowed by greater powers. It challenges a central concept in international relations theory—that states respond to insecurity by either balancing against their principal foes, “bandwagoning” with them, or declaring themselves neutral. Instead, he shows that developing countries prefer limited alignments that steer between strict neutrality and formal alliances to obtain the fruits of security cooperation without the perils of undue dependency. It also shows how structural and normative shifts following the end of the Cold War and the advent of U.S. primacy have increased the prevalence of limited alignments, which constrain U.S. foreign policy. Finally, it discusses how limited alignments in the developing world may affect the future course of international security as China and other rising powers gather influence on the world stage.
