Criminal Law Reform and Anti-Human Trafficking
The ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) implements a police accountability program, which seeks to foster accountability for human rights abuses in the Terai region of Nepal. The program cultivates a cadre of well-trained human rights defenders that are capable of accurately and reliably identifying and documenting human rights abuses. In addition, ABA ROLI conducts trainings for doctors and other medical professionals on how to identify, gather and document medical evidence of torture. ABA ROLI also partners with other Terai-based defenders to address human rights abuses and to support the development of a culture of accountability and transparency.
To promote a strong civil society, we partner with experienced lawyers and work to develop the capacity of human rights groups.
