Bringing Genocidaires to Justice: CJA Executive Director Dixon Osburn
Bringing Genocidaires to Justice: The Perspective of an NGO in the Trenches
How can one NGO take on the world’s war criminals? Come listen to how San Francisco based Center for Justice and Accountability has been leading the charge for the past twenty years.
C. Dixon Osburn is the Executive Director of the Center for Justice and Accountability (CJA), a non-profit organization that represents survivors of torture and human rights abuses in court. An expert on civil litigation and political advocacy, Osburn has previously led the effort for significant US policy changes regarding Guantanamo, torture, armed drones, and repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. Now under his leadership, the CJA seeks accountability for atrocity crimes, including against the Khmer Rouge and the Syrian regime. He received his JD/MBA from Georgetown University and his AB with distinction from Stanford University.
