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 100 such specialized experts, and there have been 15 missions specifically investigating crimes of sexual violence in conflict.
