Geoff Dancy is a scholar of international relations and comparative politics who specializes in the empirical study of human rights.

From 2010 to 2020, Dancy directed the Transitional Justice Research Collaborative, a group focused on collecting data and developing theory about human rights prosecutions, truth commissions, and other mechanisms of justice promoted by the global community. He is currently a primary investigator on a project supported by Global Affairs Canada, called Transitional Justice Evaluation Tools (TJET), which is focused on developing index measures of accountability for human rights violations.
