Jean Maria Arrigo is an American social psychologist and oral historian.

Arrigo was a member of a 2005 American Psychological Association (APA) task force evaluating the role of psychologists in U.S. intelligence and military interrogations of detainees.[1] She became known for exposing conflicts of interest of most of the others on the nominally independent task force, who were allied in advance with advocates of harsh interrogation methods.[2][3]

For her whistleblowing actions, the APA honored Arrigo in 2015[4] and the American Association for the Advancement of Science presented their 2015 AAAS Award for Scientific Freedom and Responsibility to her.[5]
