About Us

The Institute for Justice & Democracy (IJDH) in Haiti and the Bureau des Avocats Internationaux (BAI) have over 20 years of demonstrated success enforcing Haitians’ human rights, in Haiti and abroad.
We work in four areas:
1) impact litigation that opens the doors of Haitian, international and U.S. courts to precedent-setting human rights cases;
2) documentation that provides public officials, human rights advocates and grassroots activists the reliable information they need to speak up for human rights in Haiti;
3) transnational grassroots advocacy that compels governments and powerful institutions in Haiti and abroad to respect Haitians’ human rights; and
4) systemic capacity building that develops a corps of Haitian human rights lawyers and advocates trained to fight for sustainable change in their country.
