2020 International Fellows Program
Prosecutorial and Preventative Strategies to Combat Sexual and Domestic Violence
The NAGTRI International Fellows Program, organized by the NAGTRI Center for International Partnerships and Strategic Collaboration, will take place from June 5-14, 2020. This is a ten-day (including two travel days) scholarship program, provided free of cost to selected participants. All travel, lodging, and per diem will be funded through generous grants from the NAAG Mission Foundation and other funding sources. If you or anyone in your office has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Molly Flanagan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Zoe Reinstein at email@example.com.
Each year, the NAGTRI International Fellows Program provides a forum for elite government attorneys from around the world to learn from each other, explore common issues, and establish an international network for the mutual benefit of their respective offices. Approximately 18-25 participants will be chosen for the 2020 program, which will include a combination of government leaders from the United States and abroad. Past programs have included participants from Afghanistan, Armenia, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, El Salvador, France, Hungary, Iraq, Israel, Jamaica, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia, Malawi, Mali, Mexico, Mongolia, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor Leste, Uganda, Ukraine, United Kingdom, and United States, among others.
This is a challenging and demanding program, requiring full engagement in the materials and lectures, and full participation in a group research and writing project with an intense, busy schedule. Selected participants will present their research findings before a prestigious panel in New York City. The 2020 program theme will be “Prosecutorial and Preventative Strategies to Combat Sexual and Domestic Violence.”
Fellows will also be given the opportunity to meet with senior officials from the federal law enforcement and judicial community in Washington, D.C., as well as state law enforcement officials from the area. Additionally, Fellows will participate in a host of cultural activities in Washington, D.C., and New York, N.Y.
The ideal candidate is a prosecutor or other government attorney who works for the state attorney general or its international equivalent, who has a demonstrated record of dedicated public service, has a connection with sexual and domestic violence matters in the course of his/her professional duties, and is among an office’s highest quality performers and leaders who can convey cogently in their application how they will apply the information they learn directly in their professional practice upon returning home.
