In 2018, the CJ-CAP Armenia Fellows traveled to the United States for their month-long, tailored fellowship program. Their program focuses on working together to reform the pretrial detention system in Armenia.
The CJ-CAP Program empowers small groups of criminal justice actors to develop a coordinated, interagency approach to tackling cross-cutting criminal justice problems that cannot be addressed by one agency alone. The tailored fellowship includes learning through seminars and workshops with subject-matter experts, exposure through institutional visits, and mentorship by U.S. peers with expertise in the area of the intended change. Fellows learn core concepts of change management and develop a detailed change plan, including a clear problem statement, goal, theory of change, objectives, activities, timelines, and responsibility. The CJ-CAP Program is supported by a grant from the United States Department of State Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.
