Víctor Sibaja is an Associate Legal Officer at the International Criminal Court (ICC), where he provides legal advice to Judges trying cases of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. Before joining the Court, he worked as a staff attorney for UNHCR ’s partner agencies in Costa Rica providing legal advice and representation to asylum seekers, refugees and people at risk of statelessness. He has published articles in the areas of international refugee and human rights law.

Víctor holds an LL.M. in International Law from the University of Cambridge and a law degree from the University of Costa Rica. At Cambridge, he co-led a research project on the international protection of Venezuelans in Costa Rica, Trinidad and Tobago and Canada as part of the Cambridge Pro Bono Project.

CGHR runs a Practitioner Series each year in Lent term, which often features rights activists, aid practitioners and journalists etc. Our speakers relate stories about their own experience — how they came to work in the field that they are in — with details about what the work itself involves. The session thus offers a combination of substantive discussion of the speaker’s work and critical views on the challenges of working in their area, as well as personal and practical insights into how they ended up doing what they do and how they would advise others thinking about practice/policy as a possible future after studies/research.

CGHR ’s Practitioner Series provides students (both undergrads and postgrads) and researchers with the chance to ask questions of people that they might not normally have access to.

This talk is part of the Centre of Governance and Human Rights Events series.
