On February 26-27, 2020, the Rule of Law Collaborative will hold the second iteration of the JUSTRAC+ Rule of Law Systems: Country Analysis Workshop, in cooperation with the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, U.S. Department of State.

This workshop will give participants the skills to understand the justice systems of the partner nations with which they work, and will better prepare them to engage in rule of law reform. The sheer complexity of justice systems can impair understanding of the relevant problems and, in turn, lead to ineffective program design and potentially compromised relationships with partners. A thorough understanding of the context in which U.S. Government professionals are assigned to work is the crucial foundation to effective program design, strong implementation, and concrete improvements in justice systems. This workshop will help program officers working with foreign justice systems better understand that context.

Upon completion, participants will have an understanding of such topics as:

  • Rule of law assessments;
  • Justice system mapping;
  • Differences between common law and civil law;
  • Legal framework analysis; and
  • The role of citizens and civil society.
