The Justice Rapid Response Roster consists of a pool of professionals who bring the highest level of skills, knowledge and professionalism to an investigation or inquiry. Through a competitive selection process, we recruit high-quality experts with an increasingly diverse range of investigative expertises from around the world.
These experts come from both the public and private sectors. They are trained to work within international teams and in challenging circumstances, such as in countries in conflict. They offer hands-on expertise to bolster the capacity of international and national teams investigating reported genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and serious human rights violations. The roster includes well over 50 professions, such as criminal investigators, sexual and gender-based violence experts, forensic experts, prosecutors, military analysts, psychosocial experts, legal analysts, and child rights experts.
