ICCSL to Assist ABA in Commenting on "NGO" Laws

In order to facilitate the development of comments on the new and proposed “NGO” laws in Zambia and Iraq by an American Bar Association Task Force, ICCSL is making documents received so far available on its website.  The Task Force is being formed by the International NGOs and NPOs Committee of the Section of International Law.  Members of the Human Rights and Africa Committees of the International Law Section are also expected to join.  Law students at various law schools will assist with the drafting efforts.

The Comments will be based on a model used previously for comments on Zimbabwe’s Draft Changes to the NGO Law (developed by ICCSL).  Members of the Task Force will also consult the book prepared by ICCSL for the Open Society Institute in 2004: Leon Irish, Robert Kushen & Karla Simon, Guidelines for Laws Affecting Civic Organizations. 

Further information will be available at www.iccls.org.  Anyone interested in joining the Task Force should contact Karla Simon at simon@law.edu.
