The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) is pleased to welcome CHRGJ Alumna, Stephanie Barbour, Head of Office at Amnesty International’s Centre for International Justice. In this informal lunchtime discussion, Barbour will discuss her career path from NYU to Amnesty International and answer questions from students who are interested in pursuing human rights advocacy as a career. In addition, Barbour will discuss substantive aspects of her current work representing Amnesty International on international justice issues at the International Criminal Court. Barbour regularly works with the ICC’s Assembly of States Parties to promote international justice issues. We invite students and community members to bring their own questions and guide the direction of the discussion. Topics include: the role of human rights in admissibility procedures, victim participation at the ICC and related human rights concerns, the role of the Assembly of States Parties of the ICC in “management and oversight” of the ICC, the role of NGOs and states in relation to the ICC.

About the Speaker: Stephanie Barbour is a human rights lawyer at Amnesty International, where she promotes access to justice, truth and reparation for victims in domestic and hybrid justice mechanisms around the world and before the International Criminal Court. Prior to taking up the post of Head of Office of the AI Centre for International Justice in The Hague in July 2013, she worked as the Coordinator of the Campaign for International Justice from September 2011 to December 2012. Stephanie has served as a legal adviser for TRIAL in Nepal (2013) and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo (2008-2011). She has worked on a host of transitional justice issues in post-conflict countries, including war crimes prosecutions, rule of law reform, amnesties, justice outreach, witness protection and support and justice system capacity building. Following her graduation from NYU School of Law in 2007, where was a Transitional Justice Scholar and received the International Human Rights Prize, Stephanie worked in Trial Chamber I of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, supported by a fellowship from the Center for Human Rights & Global Justice.
