JUSTRAC Program Background

ABA ROLI's Justice Sector Training, Research, and Coordination program (JUSTRAC) prioritizes fostering collaboration and bolstering evidence-based initiatives among justice sector and anti-corruption practitioners within and beyond the U.S. Government. Through JUSTRAC, ABA ROLI actively contributes to the implementation of the United States Strategy on Countering Corruption by developing a Learning Agenda aimed at addressing crucial knowledge gaps. Additionally, ABA ROLI facilitates the JUSTRAC Anti-Corruption Community of Practice, which serves to amplify U.S. interagency coordination and foster engagement with civil society regarding emerging anti-corruption themes.
