Dalila has dedicated her career to helping lawyers, activists, and civil society organizations use visual documentation to prove human rights crimes and violations. Overseeing the world-renowned Video as Evidence Field Guide and curriculum at the global nonprofit WITNESS, Dalila publishes practitioner’s guidance on environmental defense, sexual and gender-based violence, atrocity crimes, and more. These resources reach tens of thousands across the world and have recently been incorporated into the International Criminal Court’s first-ever guidelines for civil society documentation.
Building on over 15 years of international experience in human rights advocacy and law, Dalila’s current work focuses on demonstratives, open source investigations, and other emerging technologies for case-building and strategic litigation. She has trained a variety of stakeholders ranging from the International Bar Association and domestic prosecutor’s offices to the United Nations to Google, and has been recently featured in publications including the CBC, Opinio Juris, and LSE.
