Criminal Law Policy & Training Center

Criminal Law Policy & Training Center (CLPTC)

The Criminal Law Policy & Training Center is a non-political, non-religious, privately funded non-profit organization dedicated to providing resources, consultation and training services to policymakers, government officials, law enforcement, civil society groups, and the private business sector who are committed to eradicating human rights violations, trafficking in human beings and sexual exploitation of children.

Our Mission

To create a world where sex trafficking, sexual violence against children, forced slave labor, and human rights violations are non-existent. Our long-term vision is to protect and rescue the poor from violence by changing the conversation around violence against the poor at the international and national levels, expanding the number of people and institutions engaged in the fight for justice, and generating the support needed to scale the mission.

Slavery has been identified as a horrific problem in many villages experiencing cyclical poverty. Hopelessness and desperation often lead to extreme vulnerability for villagers to succumb to human trafficking and slave labor. And thus our trafficking and slavery prevention work creates opportunities to break these trends.

Our international legal team is responsible for fueling Global Hope Network International’s (GHNI) mission to bring help and hope to the hidden and hurting poor around the world – by delivering sustainable transformational community development (TCD) education and training to villagers that will empower them to find solutions so they can protect and defend themselves. Global Hope Network Intl. is an official partner with the United Nations Institute for Training & Research (UNITAR)

Our Method

Our international legal team will provide resources, consultation and training services to policy makers, government officials, law enforcement, non-governmental organizations, civil society groups, and private business sector, at the national and international levels, who are committed to eradicating sex trafficking, sexual violence against children, forced slave labor, government corruption, and human rights violations.

More specifically, our international legal team will conduct a comprehensive assessment of the host country’s legal system, legislation, policies and customary practices that are negatively affecting their public justice system and enforcement of the rule of law, including:

  • Identify legislation, policies and customary practices laws within the host country that negatively affect the public justice system and enforcement of the rule of law.
  • In cooperation with host country officials, we will draft a proposed action plan and provide technical assistance to implement the desired reforms.
  • Provide sustainable solutions through drafting new legislation and/or modification of existing legislation and policies that reinforce the public justice system and the rule of law conceptualized and designed on the basis of national authority, comparative legal traditions and international standards.
  • Provide technical support and training designed to enhance technical expertise and skills of persons and organizations involved in the public justice system and enforcement of the rule of law, including lawmakers, police, prosecution and the judiciary
  • Provide consultation and training to NGOs, civil society groups, and the private business sector on how to effectively advance private initiatives, government legislation, policies and best practices that will reinforce the public justice system.
  • Promote a community based law enforcement model (COMBAT) that is based on the notion that crime enforcement efforts to enforce the rule of law and reduce crime are more effective by geographically concentrating the resources of the private and public sectors, including police, prosecutor, government agencies and administrative inspectors, and by enlisting the support of NGOs, civil society groups and private business sector in crime prevention and evidence collection activities.
  • We equip national leaders from developing nations with leadership skills, concepts and methods to support transformation in their country by inviting them to participate in our annual Transformational Leadership & Public Policy Development conference that is held in Geneva Switzerland.
