  • Author Information

    Allen S. Weiner

    Allen S. Weiner is Senior Lecturer in Law at Stanford Law School, where he serves as Director of the Program in International and Comparative Law. He is also Director of the Stanford Center on International Conflict and Negotiation and the Stanford Humanitarian Program. His research and teaching focus on the fields of international security, international conflict resolution, and humanitarian law. In the realm of international security, his work spans such issues as international law and the response to the contemporary security threats, the relationship between international and domestic law in the context of armed conflict, the law of war, just war theory, and international criminal law (including transitional justice). In the realm of international conflict resolution, his highly multidisciplinary work analyzes the barriers to resolving intractable political conflicts. In the humanitarian realm, Senior Lecturer Weiner pursues projects in collaboration with practitioners to develop solutions to humanitarian challenges, including those that intersect with technology. Weiner’s scholarship is deeply informed by experience; he practiced international law in the U.S. Department of State, in the Office of the Legal Adviser in Washington, DC, and the Office of the Legal Counselor at the U.S. Embassy in The Hague, for more than a decade before joining the Stanford faculty, advising government policymakers, participating in international negotiations, and representing the United States in litigation before international courts and tribunals.

His scholarship engages with issues of international law, with a particular emphasis on treaties, norms, and other forms of international regulation. He is the editor of the The Oxford Guide to Treaties (OUP, 2nd ed., 2020), the first edition of which was awarded a 2013 American Society of International Law Certificate of Merit, and (with Jens Ohlin) Defending Democracies: Combating Foreign Election Interference in a Digital Age (OUP, 2021). Professor Hollis is currently a non-resident Scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, an elected member of the U.S. Department of State’s Advisory Committee on International Law, and an elected Member of the American Law Institute, where he served as an Adviser on its project to draft a Fourth Restatement on the Foreign Relations Law of the United States. From 2016-2020, he served as a member of the OAS’s Inter-American Juridical Committee, including as Rapporteur for projects on binding and non-binding agreements and improving the transparency of State views on international law’s application to cyberspace. Today, Professor Hollis regularly consults with governments, international organizations, and other stakeholders on issues of international law and international relations, including working regularly with the Microsoft Corporation on its Digital Peace agenda.
