At ICTJ, he is the director of the Truth and Memory Program, providing advice to countries on truth commissions, declassification of archives, memorialization activities, museums of memory, and other social instruments. He has provided technical and strategic support to truth-seeking initiatives in places as diverse as East Timor, Morocco, Liberia, Canada, and the Western Balkans.

Before joining ICTJ, he helped organize and carry out the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission, where he worked as the director of Public Hearings and Victim Protection, and later as an editor of the commission's Final Report. Previously, he worked as an advocate for the establishment of the International Criminal Court.

He is also a visiting professor in New York, at The New School University. He will discuss the internal armed conflict in Peru, between the Shining Path and the government of that country. Any student interested in Human Rights, Peace Studies, Conflict, Authoritarianism or Latin America is welcome.
