Harvard Article Spotlights the Carter Center's Work in Rural Liberia

At the invitation of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, The Carter Center is helping Liberia rebuild its legal infrastructure, which is a prerequisite for lasting peace and democratic progress. We work in partnership with leaders at the highest levels of government, as well as those in the most remote areas of Liberia, and act as a communication bridge between these groups. The emphasis is on empowering traditionally marginalized groups, such as indigenous people, women, and youth, who historically have had little role in the political and legal processes that have shaped the nation. The Center also is supporting the Ministry of Justice in developing a Gender Crimes Unit in the Solicitor General's office; helping to expand training of lawyers, police, and other key legal administrators; and supporting the Arthur Grimes School of Law by assisting with curriculum development and other inputs.
