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.
INL works closely with counterpart embassies, the U.S. interagency, and multilateral partners to coordinate and advocate for programs in Europe and Asia with the goal of increasing the effectiveness, capacity, sustainability, and accountability of criminal justice sectors in this region. INL programs foster cooperation among regional partners in this area through initiatives to prevent and address transnational crime including money laundering, wildlife, human, and narcotics trafficking. The goal of such work is to strengthen the rule of law, combat corruption and transnational crime , improve security and stability, advance accountability of the government to its citizenry, and promote adherence to international human rights standards.
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.
