Alejandro Rodiles

Professor

A full time Professor at ITAM’s Law Department, Alejandro Rodiles teaches public international law as well as law and global governance. He earned his law degree (LL.B.) from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). He has completed his doctoral studies (summa cum laude) at Humboldt University, Berlin. In June 2016, his PhD thesis was awarded with the Faculty Price of the Faculty of Law of Humboldt University. In July 2016, he was elected a member of Mexico’s National Research System (SNI, level 1).

Alejandro Rodiles has been a lecturer at UNAM’s Faculty of Law and a research fellow at Humboldt University. He is a member of the International Law Association (ILA, Mexican Branch), participating in ILA’s Study Groups on UN sanctions, as well as on cities and international law. He is also a member of the scientific advisory board of the Mexican Yearbook of International Law (AMDI).

Alejandro Rodiles was the legal adviser of the Permanent Mission of Mexico to the United Nations, in New York, during Mexico’s past non-permanent membership in the UN Security Council (2009-2010). Previously, he served as director of international law at the Office of the Legal Adviser at the Mexican Foreign Ministry, and as junior adviser at the Policy Planning Staff of the Foreign Minister.

His research interests lie in international treaty law, international security law, as well as the role of national courts in the development of international law. He is also interested in Mexican foreign policy and its relation with international law. His main research focus in recent years has been on the ways international law is changing today because of global governance, in particular on the interplay between formal (classical) international law and informal transnational normative regimes.
