Description

Erika Dailey is the Senior Officer for Research at the Open Society Justice Initiative, based in New York. Since 2014 she has overseen the organisation's efforts to document human rights abuses and establish fact patterns for advocacy and strategic litigation on subject-matter areas ranging from discrimination to grave crimes. She also manages the portfolios on climate justice and the impacts of strategic human rights litigation. Before joining the Justice Initiative, Dailey served as deputy director of International Operations and deputy in the Office of Programs (2007-2013) at the Open Society Foundations. She was the founding director of OSF's Turkmenistan Project, which reported on human rights abuses in that repressive country and supported its civil society and a field researcher and rights advocate for Human Rights Watch, based in New York and Moscow, in the 1990s, traveling extensively in the former Soviet Union.
