The Institute for International Criminal Investigations (IICI), an international non-profit agency dedicated to the training of international criminal investigators, is the exclusive training partner of JRR.

JRR and the Roméo Dallaire Child Soldiers Initiative, together with IICI forged a new partnership, titled Monitoring and Investigating Conflict-related Violations Involving Children (MICVIC). It aims to ensure that international crimes involving children are addressed appropriately and systematically in the context of monitoring, fact-finding and investigative mechanisms. Our partnership strengthens the capacity of the international community to address crimes and serious human rights violations involving children, while always prioritizing their safety and well-being.
Justice Rapid Response works in partnership with UN Women, the UN agency for gender equality and the empowerment of women. The purpose of the partnership is to strengthen accountability for crimes of sexual and gender-based violence. This partnership, with the collaboration of JRR’s training partner organization the Institute for International Criminal Investigations (IICI) trains, accredits, rosters, and deploys experts in the investigation of sexual and gender-based crimes. These experts then lead and participate in those investigations. Since the beginning of this partnership in 2012, JRR has trained and certified over 200 such specialized experts, and there have been dozens of missions specifically investigating crimes of sexual and gender-based violence in conflict.
