Nathaniel A. Raymond
Nathaniel Raymond has over a decade of experience as a human rights investigator specializing in civilian protection during complex humanitarian disasters, the treatment of prisoners in national security settings, and crimes of war. Based at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, he leads the Satellite Sentinel Project’s (SSP) day-to-day collection and analysis of satellite imagery and other information to produce SSP’s reports on the current human security situation in Sudan. Raymond was a 2010 Rockwood Leadership Institute National Security and Human Rights Reform Fellow.
Previously, Raymond served as Director of the Campaign Against Torture at Physicians for Human Rights, as well as lead investigator into the 2001 Dasht-e-Leili massacre in Northern Afghanistan. He was lead author of the 2010 report Experiments in Torture: Human Subject Research and Evidence of Experimentation in the “Enhanced” Interrogation Program, which was the first peer reviewed paper to show evidence that detainees interrogated by the CIA after 9/11 underwent illegal human subject research. The report’s allegations are being examined as part of an ongoing Senate Select Committee on Intelligence probe of detainee abuse by the CIA.
