Ideas:
“  I am currently working on an analysis of the way the CEDAW committee has applied and interpreted the provisions in CEDAW that protect property rights. This would be a companion to my earlier article on The Human Right of Property within the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. My hope is an eventual book on how international human rights regime address property rights. I also continue to work on reforms to the global health regime in the wake of COVID-19, the subject of my forthcoming piece making The Case for Reparations for the Color of COVID.  ”
