NOTE: This workshop is intended for U.S. Government participants only.
This three-day workshop gave participants the skills to understand the justice systems of the partner nations with which they work, and better prepared 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 helped program officers working with foreign justice systems better understand that context.
