Senior Legal Advisor, NGO Trial International

Bosnia and Herzegovina

Adrijana Hanušić Bećirović is a senior legal advisor at NGO Trial International, which works to end impunity for international crimes. In this capacity, she represents survivors of conflict-related sexual abuse and torture seeking justice and recompense. She also serves as a human rights consultant for several international organizations. Adrijana and her team successfully litigated the first-ever UN Committee Against Torture case involving rights violations of a victim of torture and conflict-related sexual violence on a global scale, as well as the first ruling by this organization on a case made against Bosnia and Herzegovina. Her legal and advocacy work also resulted in the first legal recognition of children born due to wartime rape in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Europe as a category of civilian victims of war. She is deeply committed to using her knowledge and abilities to improve the lives of those whose rights have been violated.
