Europe and Asia
INL develops and implements law enforcement, rule of law, and counternarcotics policies and programming in accordance with U.S. foreign policy objectives throughout Europe and all of Asia, excluding Afghanistan and Pakistan.
INL works closely with counterpart embassies, the USG interagency, and multilateral partners to coordinate and advocate for programs in Europe and Asia with the goal of increasing the capacity and accountability of the criminal justice sector. INL programs also foster cooperation among regional partners through initiatives to prevent and address transnational crime including wildlife, human, and narcotics trafficking. INL programs support transparent and progressive rule of law efforts that promote human rights, mitigate opportunities for corruption, and advance accountability of the government to its citizenry.
Programs throughout Europe and Asia reflect our commitment to collaborate with partner nations to identify objectives of mutual interest where U.S. foreign assistance can have a measurable impact. INL coordinates closely with other donor nations and, when possible, aligns our programs and activities to support the work of regional organizations such as the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), the Central Asian Regional Information and Coordination Center (CARICC), the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and the ASEAN Regional Forum.
