The NAGTRI International Fellows Program provides an annual forum for elite government attorneys from around the world to learn from each other, explore common issues together, and establish an international network to the mutual benefit of their respective offices.
The program provides the attorney general community the unique opportunity to:
- Engage with their counterparts throughout the globe.
- Establish international networks and contacts in an increasingly global world.
- Learn how to address common issues that government attorneys face in the U.S. and abroad.
The NAGTRI International Fellows Program is a demanding 10-day collaborative program hosted in Washington, D.C., and New York City. The program requires engagement in challenging course materials and lectures, and full participation in a group research and writing project with an intense schedule.
During the International Fellows Program, selected attorneys can expect to:
- Collaborate with government attorneys from the U.S. and countries across the world, while developing a complex research project together. Explore the work of previous International Fellows.
- Meet with senior officials from the federal law enforcement, NGO, and judicial community in Washington, D.C., as well as state law enforcement officials from the area.
- Present their research findings before a prestigious panel in New York City.
- Participate in cultural activities in Washington, D.C., and New York, N.Y.
Upcoming Program: 2021 NAGTRI International Fellows
Due to the ongoing international health crisis amid the COVID-19 pandemic, NAGTRI made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 International Fellows program until 2021.
The 2021 class will focus on the important issue of domestic and sexual violence, the role of prosecutors, and the tools they may use in reducing the effects of domestic and sexual violence. Experts will provide a foundational overview of the current trends and continuing impact of these crimes while sharing investigative and prosecutorial techniques to fight such violence at every stage.
2021 International Fellows participants will learn about:
- Marginalized communities affected by violence
- Evolving practices
- Victim protection
- The impact social media has on victims and perpetrators
- How a trauma-informed approach must be implemented
- The overall global impact these crimes have on society
The 2021 class of International Fellows includes government attorneys who are experienced gender-based, victim-focused, domestic violence or sexual assault prosecutors, policymakers, or attorneys who advise officials and government agencies on regulatory and enforcement mechanisms in furtherance of public health and safety.
