On Thursday, 8 September, Justice Rapid Response Executive Director Andras Vamos-Goldman was the keynote speaker at an evening at the World Affairs Council of Dallas, Texas.
During his visit, he spoke with Council President and CEO Jim Falk, Vamos-Goldman discussed the work of JRR, and why investigations are the key to credible accountability. In the discussion, Vamos-Goldman points to the challenge of ensuring expediency within the current international justice system.
“Today, we have a very different situation than we had in the 1950’s,” said Vamos-Goldman. “The reaction time of institutions and countries today has to be much faster. It’s no longer enough to put whoever is available whenever they are available to do a certain job. Today you have to put the right expert to the right place, at the right time….This is who we are: we are the provider of these specialists.”
