INL is seeking applications from qualified organizations to provide one forty-hour litigation workshop as part of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) “Diplomado en Sistema Penal Acusatorio y Derechos Humanos” (Diplomado). The litigation workshop will be offered to students enrolled in the Diplomado over the course of two-weeks.
The recipient organization will be responsible for providing one forty-hour litigation workshop in Mexico City, over the course of two weeks to approximately 110 students, many of which are federal and local judges and magistrates.
Funding for any award(s) will come from the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City’s Rule of Law (ROL) program, as part of the Merida Initiative. The two over-arching goals of the ROL program are (1) to support Mexico’s transition and implementation of an oral, adversarial and accusatory criminal justice system and (2) to address important institutional weaknesses, particularly those which exacerbate the problem of impunity.
Please note that this RFA is not limited to organizations based in the United States. Applications will be accepted from organizations located in any nation, as well as from “international organizations” as defined by 22 U.S.C. § 288, that meet the minimum eligibility criteria.
