Professor Ouedraogo obtained a doctoral degree in international law from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva. His research interests include the history and philosophy of international law, war, its regulations and alternatives, human rights and humanitarian law, peaceful settlement of disputes, states responsibility, post-conflict peace building in Africa.
His current research is focused on the dialectic between nation-state and legal pluralism in West Africa. The approach is epistemological and critical. The purpose is to explain why the Westphalian concept of state and the western idea of democracy are of difficult application in this pluri-ethnical region.
