Ensuring accountability, rule of law, operational efficiency through the strengthening of democratic governance systems
Local and national governments around the globe endeavor to be more responsive to their citizens. But, whether it is through establishing mechanisms for participation in local decision-making or eliminating opportunities for corruption and abuse, the challenges remain daunting.
AMEX International, Inc. (AMEX) works with its partners to overcome these challenges. From Morocco to Georgia and sub-Saharan Africa to Nicaragua, the firm has built institutional and individual expertise in:
- Human-rights advocacy
- Conflict mediation and resolution
- Project design, management, and evaluation
- Judicial system and legislative process strengthening
- Administrative law reform
AMEX’s democracy and governance work always begins with an assessment of local priorities, which enables true contextual relevance which is rooted in the region’s political culture and civic society.
AMEX was awarded USAID’s International Rule of Law Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC), which entails a wide array of support services. This includes short- and long-term technical assistance and program management in order to support the development of rule of law; human rights; elections and political processes; civil society; and, governance.
