Since their launch in 2015, their dossiers have been inserted into investigations and analysis conducted by United Nations Commissions, domestic war crimes units and courts, and international tribunals and institutions.

Raquel has worked in conflict and post-conflict environments in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia on a range of international criminal law and human rights issues. She is a lawyer with a degree in Law and Business Administration from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, and an MSc in International Strategy and Diplomacy from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
