Position Description

The American Bar Association Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) is an international development program that promotes the rule of law by working with in-country partners to build sustainable institutions and societies that deliver justice, foster economic opportunity, and ensure respect for human dignity. In collaboration with in-country partners—including judges, lawyers, bar associations, law schools, court administrators, legislatures, ministries of justice, and human rights and civil society organizations—ABA ROLI designs programs that are responsive to local needs and that prioritize sustainable solutions to pressing rule of law challenges.

The Program Analyst will work within the Monitoring and Evaluation Unit, which supports monitoring and evaluation efforts across five regional divisions (Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Eurasia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Middle East and North Africa). The Program Analyst will focus on one or more specific thematic areas such as anti-corruption and public integrity, access to justice and human rights, judicial reform, legal education reform, and legal profession reform to research good practices in the field, analyze current trends to support program development, design and implement evaluations, write reports for the regional divisions, present recommendations, and develop evidence-informed solutions to new and emerging issues in the fields of democracy, governance, and rule of law.
