At the heart of JRR is our Expert Roster. Through a competitive selection process, we recruit high-quality experts with an increasingly diverse range of investigative expertise from around the world. We’ve built a pool of professionals who can bring the highest level of skills, knowledge and professionalism to an investigation or inquiry. They come from both the public and private sectors, and are trained to be productive members of international teams that often have to work in difficult of circumstances.
The JRR Expert Roster is comprised of 50 professional categories including criminal and human rights investigators, legal advisers and prosecutors, a wide variety of forensic specialists, analysts, sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) experts, children’s rights experts and witness protection specialists. This broad range of expertise and background enables us to provide experts who not only fill specialized needs, but also possess the experience, language and cross-cultural skills needed to build trust with victims and witnesses.
Hailing from every part of the world, JRR experts have demonstrated achievement in their respective fields. To become certified, experts undergo rigorous vetting: candidates are required to participate in a course focusing on the conduct of investigations under international law, in high stress, complex, conflict and post-conflict situations
