In 2014, the Bureau for African Affairs (AF) and INL agreed to assist CAR's transitional government in re-establishing the country's criminal justice system, which was devastated during the destabilizing violence.

Africa, and INL assistance seeks to re-establish functioning law enforcement and criminal justice institutions, and expand those institution's capacity to protect, serve, and provide justice to all CAR citizens across sectarian-lines, while upholding human rights and increasing public trust.
Pending funding availability and other required approvals, this project will seek to continue INL's efforts to build the capacity of CAR's judicial institutions, with an emphasis on addressing atrocities, war crimes, and conflict related crimes.
