Welcome to the Center for International Legal Cooperation (CILC)

CILC supports justice reform processes and facilitates international legal cooperation. We provide advisory and capacity building services to strengthen justice sector public authorities, professional associations, training institutes and justice reform task forces in developing countries and countries in transition.

The mission of CILC is to promote the rule of law worldwide by initiating and implementing international cooperation projects. We share the Netherlands’ experience in the legal sector and create enduring partnerships between Dutch and partner countries’ legal institutions and organisations.

CILC is a Dutch not for profit organisation, based in The Hague, and is a mandated body for the implementation of EU twinning projects on behalf of the Ministry of Security and Justice in the Netherlands.
