Jana von Stein's broad areas of research and teaching interest are international cooperation and institutions, treaty commitment and compliance, and statistical methods. In a series of articles, Jana examines when/why states make international legal commitments and when/why they comply. Each article covers one area of international cooperation: monetary affairs (the International Monetary Fund Agreement), human rights (child labor and women's wage equality agreements) and environmental affairs (the international climate change regime). More recently, Jana has become particularly interested in the international law and politics of human rights.
