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—including women and girls—first and foremost by hearing their voices."

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • In providing support to national war crimes prosecutions, ensure that careful attention is given to crimes of sexual and gender based violence.

  • Support the work of the Mechanism's Gender Focal Points by establishing a coordination committee within the Office of the Prosecutor, open to staff members at all levels in both branches.
