Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
His research interests are varied but he is particularly keen on issues related to legal and political theory and public international law and relations. His latest book “Sovereignty Conflicts and International Law and Politics” (Routledge|Taylor & Francis 2017) combines these interests in a unique form. He offers a solution to sovereignty conflicts such as Gibraltar, Falklands Islands, and Kashmir applying the international institution of shared sovereignty as viewed through the lenses of distributive justice principles.
Jorge has published worldwide several articles in three different languages—i.e. English, Spanish, and Russian. Furthermore, he has presented and delivered papers in several international seminars and congresses, mainly related to legal and political theory and international law. He is also member of several academic and professional organisations around the globe.
