Since 2015 he is Senior Fellow and Director of the Transitional Justice Program at the Centre for human rights and global justice at the School of Law, New York University.

Before becoming the Director of Research at International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) a position he held from 2001 to 2014, he was a tenured professor in Philosophy, published extensively on transitions to democracy, democratic theory, and the relationship between morality, politics, and law, edited ten books, and continues to lecture in many countries and universities across Europe, the Americas, and Africa. He has also provided advice to a wide range of Governments, the UN and non-governmental organizations, particularly victims’ organizations, truth commissions and multilateral institutions in the area of transitional justice, gender issues and the linkages between justice, security and development.
