Assembly 2019, IDLO President: "A year of significant achievement"

20 déc 2019

IDLO’s Assembly of Parties in November 2019 at the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in Rome saw Member Parties commend IDLO's efforts to deliver concrete results through its growing work around the world to solidify the rule of law. Representing the United States as the current IDLO President, Jennifer Harhigh, Deputy Chief of the U.S. Mission to the UN Agencies in Rome, said: "There is very strong support for IDLO's work, and we can see that support in the increasing membership base, in new donors, and in IDLO's ever increasing footprint around the world."

In 2019, Irene Khan finishes her second mandate as IDLO Director-General. Under her eight-year leadership, the organization has grown nearly fourfold. IDLO is currently present in 20 countries in four continents, 13 new offices have been opened, and the number of Member Parties has grown from 25 to 37.
