His research focuses on human rights documentation and analysis and transitional justice, particularly truth commissions, amnesty laws and reparations. Rothenberg has designed and managed rule of law projects in Afghanistan, Iraq and throughout Latin America including programs to train human rights NGOs, aid indigenous peoples in using international legal remedies and collect and analyze thousands of first-person narratives of victims of severe human rights violations.
