We at Just Security are thrilled to announce the latest addition to our Board of Editors — Alex Whiting.

As many of you may already know from his excellent guest posts at Just Security, Alex is a Professor of Practice at Harvard Law School where he focuses on international and domestic prosecution issues. From 2010-2013, he was the Investigation Coordinator and then Prosecution Coordinator in the Office of the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, overseeing all of the ongoing investigations and prosecutions in the Office. Before going to the ICC, Whiting taught for more than three years at Harvard Law School. From 2002-2007, he was a Trial Attorney and then a Senior Trial Attorney with the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, where he was lead counsel in several war crimes and crimes against humanity prosecutions. Before the ICTY, Alex was a US federal prosecutor for ten years, first with the Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division in Washington, DC, and then with the US Attorney’s Office in Boston.

We’re tremendously excited to have Alex aboard as we enter our third year of growth!! Feel free to welcome him on Twitter (@alexgwhiting) and be sure to read his first post as a member of our editorial board here.
