Consulting Opportunities

International Institute for Justice and Development (IIJD) Inc is an international not-for-profit, non-partisan, consulting, charitable and educational corporation specialized on Justice and Development issues. Founded in 2001 to promote the principles of democratic governance and the Rule of Law for all people nationally and internationally, IIJD’s mission focuses on the underlying causes of poverty, development crisis, and seeks to address the startling weaknesses often found in the development field through an innovative top-down and bottom-up approach. The IIJD actively advocates for systemic reform and support capacity building.

Through its top-down methodology, the IIJD considers the development of an independent judiciary and access to a free and fair justice system to be among the most important factors in advancing democracy, establishing good governance, protecting human rights, and assuring sustainable development. Only through the reform of the systems of governance can we combat corruption, demand accountability, secure investments, and create an incentive for educated and capable citizens to stay and contribute to their countries' futures. In addition to confronting the underlying causes of poverty at the international and national levels, the IIJD works at the local level to strengthen civil society.

Through its bottom-up methodology which includes working with local grassroots organizations to address community-defined problems, the IIJD supports local capacity-building and community-based development through its Development Program. Using local expertise to design and implement community-based projects, the IIJD reinforces the efforts of its partners with resources and expertise to achieve long-term solutions. We firmly believe at IIJD that only by combining these two efforts can we address the issues of development aid effectiveness, and most importantly, poverty alleviation on a global scale.
