IDLO works to create a culture of justice that entails responsive legal institutions, empowered citizens, and a legal system that enables fair outcomes.
International Development Law Organization (IDLO) is an intergovernmental organization that offers legal expertise, resources, tools and professional support to governments, multilateral partners, and civil society organizations. It carries out research and advocacy at national and international levels. Bringing together a range of diverse local, national and international stakeholders and working in an enabling rather than directive or prescriptive way, IDLO acts as a catalyst for significant social change.
IDLO’s work reflects the interdependence between the rule of law, human security and economic development. It enhances respect for human rights; encourages economic activity by providing a legal framework for business, trade and investment; and strengthens good governance through transparency and accountability of institutions.
