Graham's research interests lie in the general field of Public International Law with particular emphasis on issues surrounding the development and creation of international legal rules regulating the use of force. Graham's research combines a deep interest in not merely the development/change of the primary rules of law but also the process by which this development occurs; for which his research has been commended by the International Law Association.

An area of particular interest is the role of the United Nations in responding to mass attrocities. Graham's research enables him to engage in interdisciplinary dialogue for the puprose of informing the the promotion and development of an international world order that has human rights protection as its guiding value.
