Justice Rapid Response relies on voluntary contributions to fund its activities and a lean secretariat of highly dedicated professionals based in Geneva, with a liaison office in New York. The organization’s role as a unique actor in the field of transitional justice and accountability – along with its rigorous management and consistent results – has earned it the support of reliable donors.
In order to meet steadily growing demand and to make a lasting impact in our field, we seek predictable operational support. As flexibility is key to our success, funding can take a variety of forms, including unearmarked, programmatic, thematic, or project-based funding. We continually seek to diversify our partnerships with a broader range of public donors and private foundations to offset the limited availability of funding for the sector of conflict, peace and security, which still only represents less than 2 percent of total Official Development Assistance.
