Research interests

Igor is best known for his writings on the philosophy of Alain Badiou and its analyses and remedies to do with modern media-saturated environments, but he has also made significant contributions to the history of law in early modern Europe, to the theory of comparative law, and to the now burgeoning field of law and space. He is happy to supervise prospective doctoral candidates in any of those areas of interest.
