Justice Rapid Response (JRR) and the Institute for International Criminal Investigations (IICI) are pleased to inform you of our Call for Nominations for the upcoming ONLINE JRR Expert Roster Recruitment Course on International Criminal Investigations which will be held from 16 September until 3 October 2020. This course is made possible thanks to the generous contribution of the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).
JRR Roster recruitment courses are an integral part of the recruitment process for the JRR Roster. The goal of this year’s course is to increase the pool of 20 experts from global South ODA recipient countries (please see footnote 1 below), that are ready to deploy to national, international and regional accountability and transitional justice mechanisms in order to help ensure those bodies have the highly specialized expertise to properly document, investigate, analyze and prosecute international core crimes and serious human rights violations. Previous deployments included support to States, the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, UN Commissions of Inquiry and Fact-Finding Missions, the International Criminal Court (ICC), international and hybrid courts, and truth commissions, among others.
This year’s intensive recruitment course will be delivered in an entirely online format. Over the course of 2.5 weeks, two groups of ten participants will each day participate in half-day webinars followed by individual or group exercises. The course is tailored for criminal justice and related professionals and aims to prepare, equip, vet and certify these professionals for investigations of international crimes involving multi-disciplinary, diverse monitoring and investigative teams that can be deployed rapidly and with short reporting deadlines. JRR will decide on certification of participants onto the JRR Roster after the course is completed.
Please note that the deadline to apply has been extended to 12 August 2020, 11:59 pm Central European Summer Time.
The selection will focus on professionals from the global South with relevant expertise specified in section-I of this document, which includes experts who have experience in dealing with international crimes, and who are willing and could be made available for international deployments at short notice.
