RED ARCH RESEARCH is made up of a talented group of cultural property protection leaders who have partnered together to bring intellectual strength and a spirit of innovation to the organization. RED ARCH RESEARCH is led by a volunteer Board of Directors and consultants with vast experience in law, policy, politics, museums, art, history, executive administration, law enforcement, academia, and journalism, assembled together to protect cultural property.
Because cultural heritage protection is an expansive field, RED ARCH RESEARCH is singularly committed to collaboration. We seek partnerships with universities and other nonprofits to tap in to their institutional strengths in the social sciences, historic preservation, archaeology, art history, criminal justice, the physical and biological sciences, and statistics.
