Violence, corruption and crime have devastating consequences for communities all over the world. Criminal law and criminal justice policy are powerful tools that can help keep communities safe. However, when resources are limited and communities are at risk it can often be difficult to quickly and accurately determine the best policy options for positive change. ICCLR has been leading criminal law and criminal justice policy reform projects since 1991. In Canada and internationally, ICCLR offers programming oriented to technical co-operation that is consistent with United Nations international human rights standards and with Canada’s international development goals. ICCLR’s long history of successful partnerships with authorities and civil society organizations all over the world speaks to the quality of our work and to our ability to continue to assist governments in developing and sustaining healthy, safe communities.

Technical assistance projects are non-financial assistance provided by ICCLR experts and specialists. ICCLR develops and delivers technical assistance programs including needs assessments, capacity building measures, performance indicators, and measurement frameworks. In addition, ICCLR Associates can provide recommendations on legislative reform, legislation drafting and treaty implementation.

Throughout its history, ICCLR has successfully delivered on technical assistance projects in Africa, Asia, Canada, the Caribbean and Central America. Examples of some of our technical assistance projects can be found here – ICCLR Impact Stories
