Justice, Law


The International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law (IIJ) provides 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. More broadly, it works to strengthen criminal justice systems and build regional judicial, police and other criminal justice practitioner networks to promote justice, security, and human rights. The IIJ places a particular focus on countries seeking to develop rule of law-based approaches to addressing security challenges such as terrorism and other transnational criminal activities. Although the IIJ’s mandate will be global in nature, initial focus is on countries in North, West, and East Africa, and the Middle East, paying particular attention to supporting countries in transition.


At the June 2012 Ministerial meeting of the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF), GCTF ministers and senior officials announced strong support for the establishment of the IIJ as a key platform to deliver innovative and sustainable training to implement the counterterrorism (CT)-related, rule of law-based good practices being developed by the GCTF and other international and regional fora. G8 leaders welcomed the International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law (IIJ) in their statement at the June 2013 G8 Summit. A range of governments and international, regional, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) collaborated on developing the IIJ’s mandate, mission, structure, legal foundation, and curriculum.
