Rule of Law Systems: Program Development Workshop

Rule of Law Systems: Program Development Workshop

April 11, 2024

May 2, 2024


This workshop focuses on the development of rule of law interventions and fosters further understanding of country context and justice systems from an interdependent perspective. The program will occur over four days, and participants will learn through a mix of interactive lecture, practical hypothetical exercises, office hours, and small-group discussion of a sample project developed by the participant in order to develop better programming decisions. Because this program builds on the skills learned in ROLC’s Country Analysis Workshop, those considering participation in future iterations are encouraged to take the Country Analysis Workshop first, but it can also be taken as a stand-alone workshop.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to construct a rudimentary context map of their target justice subsector in their country of focus;
  • Participants will be able to construct a project design specific to their reform “target,” (institutional, capacity, procedural, etc.) considering identified complexities and assumptions; and
  • Participants will have developed a refined project design over the course of the workshop.

This event is open to all USG personnel, regardless of hiring mechanism or location. The content will be useful for those engaged in any aspect of rule of law, justice, or anticorruption programming (i.e., working with courts, police, corrections, advisory support, civil society, etc.).

This workshop is offered over four weeks in response to demand for a less concentrated training format. However, the learning content still requires commitment. Each workshop will consist of four 2-hour instructor-led online learning sessions (April 11, April 18, April 25, May 2 each session from 10am-12pm). In between sessions, participants will have homework, including practical application of skills and viewing or completing other workshop content. Inter-session work shouldn’t take more than 1 hour to be completed before the next session. Participants are expected to attend every session and to complete all homework assignments.

For INL staff, successful completion of all assignments and full attendance of this workshop will provide 12 hours of training time.  Please contact with any questions about training eligibility or hours.
