From 2012 to 2015 the Geneva Academy hosted the Adviser to the UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence (SR) Pablo de Greiff.
Legal and Political Advice
During these four years, the Adviser – Thomas Unger – was able to provide targeted legal and political advice on the very sensitive areas the mandate is working on. He developed close links and collaborations with Geneva-based multilateral discussions, leading NGOs working in the field of transitional justice and international organizations, in particular the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The project was made possible through the support of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Sweden and Switzerland. This support came at a crucial moment and contributed to the successful implementation of the mandate in its important and challenging first three years.
