Germany joins the International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law’s (IIJ) Governing Board of Administrators, becoming the 14th member state of the board.
During the last Governing Board of Administrator’s meeting on the 6th of November, the IIJ’s board voted in favor of Germany’s request to join the board.
This step comes after years of collaboration between the IIJ and Germany and Germany’s steadfast financial support to the IIJ as a donor as well as with expertise in IIJ Programmes.
The latest joint project was a few weeks ago in Abidjan where the IIJ conducted the third in a series of workshops on Mitigating Risks Associated with Abuse of Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions (DNFBPs) for Terrorist Financing Purposes in West Africa. The event, which reconvened the same cohort from two previous programs to maximize progressive expertise building and networking as well as brought in new participants, provided support in building knowledge and skills on preventing, identifying and disrupting illegal activities involving DNFBPs that contribute to financing of terrorist groups in the region.
We are looking forward to working, hand in hand, with Germany on several projects. The IIJ strives to reinforce its ability to further promote justice, the rule of law and human rights.
