Red Arch Team
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. We are led by volunteer board members, advisors, and consultants who have vast experience in law, policy, politics, museums, art, history, executive administration, law enforcement, academia, and journalism. We have assembled together to protect cultural heritage.

Because cultural heritage protection is an expansive field, RED ARCH RESEARCH is singularly committed to collaboration. We seek partnerships with universities and 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.
