On behalf of the IDC staff and board, this month we bid farewell to Seza Kirishdjian, Vanessa Martinez, and Dr. Robyn Sampson.

Seza's incredible energy and creative ideas over the past year as Middle East & North Africa Programme Officer have been much appreciated by all of her colleagues here at the IDC. We know she will continue to excel.

We offer our heartfelt gratitude and best wishes to Vanessa Martinez, who has served as the IDC's Americas Regional Coordinator for the past 7 years. Vanessa's talent, skill, and vision changed the landscape of the IDC's advocacy work in the Americas. She will continue to move mountains in all that she does, and we are deeply thankful for her time with us here at the IDC.

Lastly, we bid farewell to Dr. Robyn Sampson, who has served as IDC’s Senior Advisor and Research Coordinator for 5 years, and supported IDC’s research long before that. Robyn’s research on alternatives to detention shaped IDC’s analysis and advocacy approach. We will look to the knowledge she shared with the organisation for many years to come with much gratitude and admiration.
