Fabra-Zamora’s scholarship focuses on law and philosophy, including conflicts of law, legal reasoning and concepts of truth and justice.

He was co-editor, for example, of the 2021 book, “The Colombian Peace Agreement: A Multidisciplinary Assessment,” which provides an interdisciplinary examination of the achievements, failures and challenges of the peace agreement signed between the Colombian Government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia to end one of the largest and most violent conflicts in the Western Hemisphere.
