Biography

Jessica Buchler earned her LLB at Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie in São Paulo, Brazil, where she is also a member of the bar association for practicing lawyers. After graduation, she worked as an intern at the precautionary measures division of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) – The Organization of American States (OAS), where her interest in transitional justice grew while researching and analyzing relevant jurisprudence from the Inter-American System of Human Rights, which gave her an insight on transitional justice in Latin America. Jessica also has strong experience in the humanitarian field as she worked as an associate at the Policy and Humanitarian Diplomacy division of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Geneva. There, she focused on the Americas region and the UN system, both from an operational and diplomatic perspective, developing a strong interest in conflict prevention. Before starting her LLM in International Legal Studies at NYU School of Law, where she is also a recipient of the Dean’s Graduate Award, Jessica spent 8 months with the Ecuadorian Red Cross in Quito, working on migration across the country.

As a Human Rights Scholar for the Prevention Project, Jessica will assist Professor Pablo de Grieff with the overall organization of the project, including organizing and taking part in all workstream meetings on Constitutional and Legal Tools, Security, State Capture, Civil Society, Personal Dispositions and Culture.
