Resource Mobilisation Manager



The International Institute for Justice and the Rule of Law (IIJ) is an organisation located in Malta with a mission to deliver innovative and sustainable capacity building through the implementation of counter-terrorism related, rule of law-based good practices developed by the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) and other international and regional fora. Since its inauguration in 2014, the IIJ has trained more than 9000 criminal justice practitioners through its interactive capacity-building workshops – in Malta and abroad – that enhance the competencies of parliamentarians, judges, prosecutors, police, prison, and other criminal justice practitioners to address terrorism and related transnational criminal activities within a rule of law framework. The IIJ tailors its programmes to the needs of the regions it serves, including North, West and East Africa; the Middle East; and select engagement in the Balkans, and Central, South and Southeast Asia.
