Justice Sector Support Programs Worldwide

When it comes to U.S. Government foreign assistance to rule of law development programs, or international justice sector support programs, we need to look at the Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance  (DHRG) section of the U.S. Government’s website on all foreign assistance programs, since rule of law projects fall under this section.  If you visit the site, you will discover that for Fiscal Year 2018 $1.8 billion have been planned for the DHRG sector, out of $25.8 billion.  Peace & Security as well as the Health sectors and Humanitarian Assistance take the biggest pieces of the pie in foreign assistance.

Although DHRG is relatively small in the scope of U.S. international development support, I believe it is a critical component in what we do as a country and as a people.
