Prosecutor, International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals
Serge Brammertz

"To truly achieve international justice, women and girls must be equal participants. My office has strived to promote gender equality both within our office and through our programmatic work, recognising the paramount importance of taking a gender-inclusive approach to investigating and prosecuting international crimes. Accountability depends on ensuring justice for all victims, first and foremost by hearing their voices."

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
