Leader Raquel Vazquez Llorente from 2020 Leaders Europe.

Permanent Representative to the ICC, International Federation for Human Rights

Raquel Vázquez Llorente is FIDH’s Permanent Representative to the International Criminal Court, and their Head of Delegation in The Hague. Before joining FIDH (International Federation for Human Rights), Raquel helped build eyeWitness, an organization that created award-winning technology for capturing verifiable digital evidence of human rights abuses. In her work, Raquel has led strategic partnerships with European litigation networks and local activists that have contributed to the documentation and investigation of international crimes in Central America, the Middle East, Africa, and Eastern Europe. Raquel believes technology can facilitate justice and help bridge the gap between human rights defenders on the frontlines and institutions with the authority to hold powerful actors to account.
