ABA ROLI is a non-profit program that implements legal reform programs in over 60 countries around the world. ABA ROLI has nearly 700 professional staff working abroad and in its Washington, D.C. office. ABA ROLI’s host country partners include judges, lawyers, bar associations, law schools, court administrators, legislatures, ministries of justice and a wide array of civil society organizations, including human rights groups.
The American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) will implement a program to improve Northern Nigerian communities’ capacity to identify and respond to threats to civilians, particularly to women and girls. To achieve this goal, ABA ROLI will work with a partner on the ground that is already operating an Early Warning System (EWS) to expand the system to two high-risk areas in Northern Nigeria and strengthen the response mechanisms present within the existing EWS in Northern Nigeria.
The program activities will largely be implemented by the partner organization currently operating the EWS, with supervision and technical assistance provided by ABA ROLI. The EWS Expert’s role in this project will not require full-time work throughout the duration of the eight- month- long program but will involve 3-4 trips to secure locations in Nigeria to assist ABA ROLI’s local partner in the assessment and design of response plans. Preparatory work can be conducted remotely.
