Mongolia Background

With funding from the U.S. Department of State, the ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) began its Mongolia program in November 2009. The program intends to reduce human trafficking in the country. ABA ROLI and its local partners—the Center for Human Rights and Development and the National Center against Violence—are working to build critical legal expertise and support strategic litigation. The program aims to increase criminal prosecution, encourage victims to seek civil remedies and enhance witness protection.
