Research activities 
Tanja Aalberts is director of the research Centre for the Politics of Transnational Law and conducts research in the programme Boundaries of Law. Her main fields of interest are International Relations theory and legal theory, the interplay between inter¬national law and international politics in practices of governance. One of the focal points of her research are conceptualizations of sovereignty in legal-political discourse. Apart from engaging in (meta)theoretical analyses, she has more recently applied these insights to different practices of contemporary governance, in publications on inter alia the Counterterrorist Committee, state failure, and irregular boat refugees. She is currently working on a book project that analyses the interplay between responsibility, legalization and politics within international society in the globalized context. She participates as working group director in the COST Action IS1003 ‘International Law between Constitutionalisation and Fragmentation’.
