Work and Research

Thomas Probert is the Head of Research of the new international collaboration “Freedom from Violence”, initially housed at ICLA, which is an initiative to establish a research network that brings together researchers from across the African continent focussing on evidence-based and human-rights based approaches to the problem of violence. He acted as a Research Consultant to the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions from 2013 – 2016, based from 2015-6 in the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva. He still works closely with OHCHR, particularly in supporting its work under the Addis Ababa Roadmap, which guides collaboration with the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights.
