Human rights lawyer and 1979 Furman University history alumnus David Tolbert is a visiting scholar at Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy. Tolbert, who has been at Duke since February, temporarily stepped away from his position as president of the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ), a human rights organization focused on accountability and transitional justice. Based at the Duke Center for International Development (DCID), Tolbert spends most of his time on research and writing, and engages faculty and students through seminars and other small group events. Learn more about his research focus and his work in transitional justice in a DCID article.

A native of North Carolina, Tolbert graduated magna cum laude from Furman. He holds a J.D. from the University of North Carolina and an LL. M. with distinction from the University of Nottingham. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and regularly appears in the Huffington Post.
