The Leitner Professor of Law, Politics, and International Studies, Professor Stone Sweet’s interests are comparative and international politics and law, and European integration. His research focuses on how rule systems emerge and evolve over time, and with what consequences for society. Most of his published work approaches this question by looking at how new legal systems develop, including his newest book, A Europe of Rights: The Impact of the European Convention on Human Rights on National Legal Systems.
