I teach legal and political philosophy at Suffolk University in Boston, where I co-founded and direct the Graduate Program in Ethics and Public Policy.


My teaching and writing focus on how countries emerge from war and how they come to terms with their past.


Sympathizing with the Enemy was recently published by Brill. It provides a philosophical account of political reconciliation. You can read a special symposium on it here and watch a panel discussion here.


I’m currently writing a book on truces and ceasefires. You can get the main idea here. The book will come out with Palgrave Macmillan in 2015.


A collection of essays on Transitional justice, co-edited with two colleagues, is coming out with Ashgate in early 2014. The Call for Papers is here


I often write essays and op-ed pieces about the Middle East conflict for newspapers and magazines. These have been published by the Boston Globe, The Christian Science Monitor, The Miami Herald, The International Herald Tribune, The Providence Journal, the Forward, The National Interest Online and Cognoscenti among others.


I’m  available to give public lectures and talks about political reconciliation, the ethics of war and developments in the Middle East to a variety of audiences - both academic and not.


In addition to my scholarly work, I am a Senior Fellow at the International Center for Conciliation. The Center tries to use divergent understandings of history as a tool in conflict resolution.
