Biography

Allen Weiner is Co-Director of the Stanford Program in International and Comparative Law and Stanford Center on International Conflict and Negotiation.

Weiner is an international lawyer with expertise in international and national security law, the law of war, international conflict resolution, and international criminal law (including transitional justice). His scholarship focuses on international law and the response to the contemporary security threats of international terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. His work also explores the relationship between international law and the invocation of domestic “war powers” in connection with the U.S. response to terrorism, as well as the role of legal norms in the resolution of international conflict.

He practiced international law in the U.S. Department of State for more than a decade advising government policymakers, negotiating international agreements, and representing the United States in litigation before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the International Court of Justice, and the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal.
