Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti (IJDH)

The Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI) and its partner the Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti (IJDH) work with nonviolent grassroots movements to advance con­sti­tu­tional democ­racy, jus­tice, and human rights in Haiti. Founded in 1994 and 2005, respectively, the BAI and IJDH pur­su­e legal cases, train progressive Haitian lawyers, collaborate with domestic and international solidarity groups, and dis­trib­ut­e infor­ma­tion on human rights con­di­tions in Haiti. In doing so, they promote the rule of law and democ­racy in the short term, while working to address the root causes of violence, poverty, and marginalization in Haiti in the long term.

A 2013 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported the Social Justice Lawyer Training Program, which aims to build a social justice legal community in Haiti.
