He has written two books, Globalization and Citizenship (2012) and The Practices of Global Citizenship (2007), both published by Rowman & Littlefield, as well as numerous articles in academic journals and commentaries in newspapers, including The New York Times / International Herald Tribune and the Christian Science Monitor. He often gives interviews to journalists around the world and worked as a news reporter in his native New England before launching his academic career.
