OUR MISSION

The Guernica Group is an international initiative that brings together experienced litigators, investigators and other professionals who work to bring perpetrators of international crimes and grave human rights violations to justice; seize their ill-gotten assets for the benefit of their victims; and strengthen systems of accountability, truth-telling, reparation, and non-recurrence. Working in country and in partnership with affected communities, we offer a range of highly specialized skills to achieve accountability.

Our international team of lawyers work in partnership with national counterparts to enforce international criminal norms and build legal accountability strategies before national jurisdictions or international bodies. We believe that when conceived and implemented with the input of our national partners, external judicial pressure can lead to the opening of a collective social reflection about a country’s past. We build cases that could serve as catalysts for transitional justice and accountability in-country.

Our unique transnational, victim-centred, and highly technical approach, demands from our team to observe the timing and level of development of national political processes and goes further than mere accountability seeking to incentivize the necessary institutional reform to prevent future violations.
