He then spent two years practicing civil rights law in New York. For the past sixteen years, he has worked for HRW, where he first focused on accountability issues in southern Africa and arbitrary detention in China.

He has led advocacy efforts urging the creation of effective domestic accountability mechanisms in the DRC and the former Yugoslavia.
