Rachel Taylor

Justice Sector Advisor

Justice must be accessible and affordable to every human being. Creating user-friendly justice necessitates bringing everyday justice users together in partnership and dialogue with justice actors, governments, and donors.

Rachel Taylor is a Junior Partnership Developer at The Hague Institute for Innovation of Law (HiiL). Rachel supports the team to create new partnerships, manage accounts, prepare communications for donors, and grow HiiL’s funding base. Originally from the United States, Rachel grew up in Costa Rica and lived in Mexico after completing her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and International Studies. Rachel moved to the Netherlands in 2017 to pursue a Master’s degree in International Development Studies at the University of Amsterdam. Prior to HiiL, Rachel worked in the educational private sector in program management and partnership building.

Rachel’s Master’s thesis research was conducted in Veracruz, Mexico where she worked with indigenous students at an Intercultural University. Her thesis focused on the role indigenous-based knowledge plays, when incorporated into the university curriculum, on student identity.

Outside of the office, Rachel enjoys travelling to new places (ideally warm beaches), cooking, playing games, and spending time with her husband and rescue dog.
