Judicial Reform

The ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) is implementing a regional judicial training initiative in Central Africa to improve the impartiality, competence, efficiency and effectiveness of national judicial systems through high-quality and high-visibility training and through professional development opportunities for justice sector personnel. To nurture local support for and engagement in this initiative, ABA ROLI will facilitate the close involvement of key national stakeholders, including justice sector personnel, relevant ministries and civil society organizations. These stakeholders will lead each country’s participation in the judicial training initiative and will elect delegates to a regional steering group that will serve as the principal governance body of the training initiative and that will play a central role in identifying training priorities.
