    Human Rights & International Justice

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Center for Justice and International Law (CEJIL), a leading non-governmental human rights interlocutor before the Inter-American Human Rights System, will work with civil society partners to strengthen the System and advance criminal justice reform in Mexico. It will litigate cases against Mexico before the Inter-American System, monitor State compliance with decisions, and conduct advocacy through the media. The project is designed to help secure the independence and autonomy of the Inter-American System and utilize the System to improve the justice system in Mexico.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Center for Justice and International Law $450,000 between 2003 and 2014.
