Founder and Director
Megan Nobert is a Canadian born legal professional and academic specialised in international criminal law and human rights. Trained as a lawyer in Canada, and currently qualifying in New York State, she has worked with the prosecution’s offices at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, the Special Tribunal for Lebanon and the International Criminal Court.
Megan is also a humanitarian, having worked in in the Gaza Strip, Jordan and South Sudan on issues of humanitarian law and gender-based violence. While in South Sudan in 2015, she was sexually assaulted by another humanitarian, and this lead to her going public in Buzzfeed and the Guardian about her experience in July 2015. It also inspired her to start a new NGO called Report the Abuse, whose mandate is to break down the silence on sexual violence against and within the humanitarian and development community.
Megan is currently based in Geneva, Switzerland, as Founder and Director of Report the Abuse. She is also actively pursuing a PhD in Criminal Law from the University of Groningen on the topic of gender and genocide.
