Ingo's work has focused on the theory and practice of interpretation in international law and on the different functions that international courts play in global governance. More recently, he has carried out research on contingency in the course of international law. He now places particular emphasis on international law’s role in creating conditions of social (in)justice. Furthermore, he contributes to the research cluster on International Public Authority (anchored at the MPIL).
His Inaugural Lecture on International Law and the Spectre of Inequality is available in print [here] and as a video, [here] (May 2019). See here for a recent blog symposium on Contingency in International Law: On the Possibility of Different Legal Histories (OUP 2021)
