Coralie Pison Hindawi

Associate Professor in Political Studies American University of Beirut

With a background in law, international politics and security studies, I joined the American University of Beirut in 2009. I am the author of a book on the use of coercion against Iraq (Twenty Years in the Shadow of Chapter VII, published in French by L’Harmattan, Paris, in 2013) and a number of articles and book chapters dealing with coercive policies, notably in the field of arms control and disarmament, most of them focused on Middle Eastern countries (Iraq, Iran, Syria).

I have also been trying to engage critically with the doctrine of Responsibility to Protect (R2P), exploring notably the role that individuals may be acknowledged as playing in the struggle against mass atrocities. 

My work has been published in Alternatives, the Journal for Conflict and Security Law, the Oxford Handbook of the Responsibility to Protect and Third World Quarterly.
