Itamar Mann is currently the national security law fellow at the Center on National Security and the Law at Georgetown Law Center. His research interests include international law, national security law, immigration, and legal theory. Previously, he worked in human rights and criminal defense litigation in his home country Israel, and reported on the violation of migrant rights in Southeast Europe for Human Rights Watch. He is currently working on two main projects. One is a book project examining the foundations of human rights through a history of international legal responses to "boat people" since the mid-20th century; and the other is a research on the role of engineers and robotics experts in the contemporary transformation of the laws of war. His academic work is multidisciplinary, and often engages the humanities and the social sciences. Itamar holds an L.L.B. from Tel Aviv University, where he also studied philosophy, and an L.L.M. from Yale Law School, where he is completing his J.S.D.
