International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law


We provide rule of law-based training to lawmakers, police, prosecutors, judges, corrections officials, and other justice sector stakeholders on how to address terrorism and related transnational criminal activities within a rule of law framework.


The International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law builds and leverages partnerships with existing international, regional, and national training centers and academies, universities, the United Nations and other multilateral organizations, and relevant non-governmental organizations.


The IIJ works flexibly with partners in developing interactive training and practical programs in a neutral setting. IIJ programs incorporate expertise from different legal systems and are designed to develop hands-on solutions to tailor criminal justice responses to terrorism while respecting rule of law principles.
