American Bar Association (ABA)

















The ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) is an international development program that promotesĀ justice, economic opportunity and human dignity through the rule of law.

The ABA established the program in 2007 to consolidate its five overseas rule of law programs, including the Central European and Eurasian Law Initiative (CEELI), which it created in 1990 after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

For more than 25 years, and through their work in more than 100 countries, the ABA Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) and their partners have sought to strengthen legal institutions, to support legal professionals, to foster respect for human rights and to advance public understanding of the law and of citizen rights.
