He makes frequent trips to Iraq, where he recently served as chief of party for the Institute's programs. Prior to joining the Institute, he was an abuse prevention officer in Iraq with the U.S. Agency for International Development's Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) and Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART), focusing on identifying, monitoring, and preventing gross human rights violations. His work included providing support to mass grave exhumations, investigations, and evidence collection for the future Iraqi tribunal and the Property Claims Commission. He coordinated closely with the Coalition Provisional Authority on transitional justice issues and assisted in local capacity-building measures, including assistance to women's groups, student organizations, and humanitarian NGOs. A research assistant in 2002 with the Institute's Balkans Initiative, Mann served as a U.S. Army infantry officer from 1997 to 2002, and with peacekeeping deployments to Bosnia-Herzegovina (SFOR) and Kosovo (KFOR).
