Agneta Johansson is stepping down as ILAC’s executive director to enter retirement.

October 1, 2022

We would like to thank Agneta for her incredible dedication to ILAC and our vision of equal access to quality justice for all. Agneta has been with ILAC since our founding over twenty years ago and has led the Consortium with excellence as executive director for nearly a decade. Under her leadership, ILAC has produced some of its most impactful work that included our rule of law assessments in Syria, our coordinated response to justice needs across the Middle East & North Africa after the Arab Spring, and our most recent status report of Ukraine’s justice system during wartime.

Agneta will be missed. To help ILAC navigate this transition, Quinn O’Keefe will serve as interim executive director with Hanna Johnsson of the Raoul Wallenberg Institute as managing director. Olof Sjögren will round out the executive team as ILAC’s director of finance. We, of course, also benefit from the strategic guidance and support from our board of directors under Mark Ellis’s leadership as ILAC President.
