Previously, he served as the ICRC Legal Advisor at the ICRC Delegation in Washington, DC, with particular focus on Guantanamo and military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. Prior to that, he served ICRC as regional legal advisor based in Pretoria, South Africa.
Before joining the ICRC, Jamie Williamson was with the United Nations ad hoc international criminal tribunals in Tanzania and the Netherlands, and Sierra Leone, for nearly 9 years, where he worked on the first international judgments on genocide and war crimes in non-international armed conflicts. He has published numerous papers on repression of war crimes, international justice, and the challenges to international humanitarian law in modern day conflicts.
