There, he was conducting research, drafted reports and assisted in developing business and human rights training. His interest in business and human rights as they relate to military and private security companies led him to a project about the Montreux Document, which defines how international law applies to the activities of private and security companies in conflict zones, resulting in a paper he submitted to the UN.
