Professor Charli Carpenter Accepts Research Fellowship at Harvard's Belfer Center for International Security

Professor Charli Carpenter will join Harvard's Kennedy School this fall as a senior fellow at the Belfer Center on International Security, where she will spend a semester completing work in progress on the laws of war and the nuclear ban treaty, and write a number of external grants to support her newly founded Human Security Lab, an interdisciplinary project focused on global human security law and policy. This summer, Carpenter hired and trained four undergraduates and supervised five graduate students through the Lab on a variety of projects related to humanitarian disarmament and conflict transformation. In fall, Carpenter hopes to secure external funding to expand Human Security Lab programming to involve events, speaker series', and develop a grants program for faculty and graduate student research at the intersection of inequality, conflict resolution and humanitarian law. While maintaining her post at Belfer on sabbatical this fall, Professor Carpenter also looks forward to staying involved with the Political Science and Legal Studies community through the Conflict, Violence and Security workshop, Human Security Lab speaker series, and continuing to serve the university community with public-facing op-eds for World Politics Review.
