He also specialises in the analysis of strategic interactions between actors (with use of game theory). His ongoing research projects focus on the one hand on the institutional design of pan-regional integration groupings (such as APEC and FTAA), and on the other hand on the working of the WTO as a political system, with specific analysis of the questions of legitimacy and efficiency.
