Dr. Koremenos's main research interests are in international law and international institutions. She has published extensively on these topics in edited books, book chapters, and refereed journals such as International Organization. She is one of the editors ofRational Design: Explaining the Form of International Institutions. The main argument of this book is that international organizations vary widely in key institutional features such as membership, scope, and flexibility because international actors are goal-seeking agents who make certain institutional design choices to solve specific cooperation problems they face in different issue-areas.
