Nicaragua: Supporting the Rule of Law

In August 2016, NCSC was awarded the Program to Strengthen Rule of Law in Nicaragua by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).

The program will promote engagement of future legal professionals, the private sector, and civil society in justice sector advancement, and will invest in the next generation of legal professionals to contribute to the Rule of Law in Nicaragua.

The Program will implement activities that address information and mobilization gaps in Nicaragua, by advancing legal education; encouraging private sector engagement; and supporting civil society organizations to improve their capacity as a cross-cutting theme in their existing and future citizen security programs.
