Expanding Fairness, Fighting Corruption: A Project for Afghanistan


March 22 - 26, 2016

About Afghanistan

The Afghanistan Independent Bar Association (AIBA) was established on July 30, 2008 and includes over 400 members. It has been working to fortify the legal processes to build public trust in the justice sector. It gives access to fair trials, provides a committee of well-qualified defense attorneys, and works to fight against corruption. It was first established under a grant from the Swedish foreign Ministry, but since then, AIBA has been working on their budgeting processes. They implemented a financial policy and plan with the help of USAID. AIBA has recently been focusing on increasing the cooperation between the justice sector and stakeholders.

About the Program

The IVLP is a professional exchange program that seeks to build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations through carefully designed short-term visits to the U.S. for current and emerging foreign leaders. Over the last 70 years, the IVLP has developed into the premier professional exchange program in the U.S. and brings over 200 emerging leaders to Jacksonville every year.
