The CWAG Alliance Partnership is an international rule of law program supported by the state Attorneys General’s Offices (AGOs) of 42 US states and jurisdictions. The CWAG Alliance Partnership promotes collaboration among state Attorneys General from participating countries; supports greater efficiency and transparency in criminal, civil and commercial judicial systems; and provides training programs that promote the effective investigation and prosecution of transnational criminal activity.
During the past decade of fostering institutional relationships with state AGOs in Mexico, the CWAG Alliance Partnership has generated robust support from every state-level jurisdiction in Mexico, as well as the federal AGO. This collaborative partnership, funded by the State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), encourages successful prosecutions of trans-border crime and enhanced communication and collaboration with our counterparts in Mexico. Activities include programs to combat transnational crime at the state level, regular communications to strengthen information exchanges among involved AGOs, and training and consulting programs to support Mexican AGOs in their transition to an oral, adversarial criminal justice system. CWAG Alliance Partnership activities in Mexico have reached more than 35,000 members of the legal community.
