Peter Wieltschnig is a Research Assistant at Trilateral Research. Peter is currently working to support the development of a human security typology and approaches for operationalising the concept of human security in a military context.
Peter has a keen interest in international humanitarian law, human rights law and human security, with a particular focus on the protection of civilians in armed conflict, economic, social and cultural rights in conflict settings, and non-State armed groups’ compliance with international humanitarian and human rights standards.
Peter’s background lies in legal research, analysis and policy drafting, having worked on projects including: the protection and empowerment of refugees and displaced persons in Lebanon and Syria, the development of due diligence legislation to regulate the arms industry and States’ arms export regimes, the criminalisation of humanitarian assistance in Europe; and the human rights impacts of counter-terrorism legislation in Ireland and the UK.
