Participants included Ambassador William Brownfield, Ambassador Marc Ginsberg, and Irene Khan, Director-General of IDLO.  “I am here to say to you that we need IDLO, and if it did not exist today, we would have to invent it – because it does something that must be done, and [that] so far, no one else in the world is doing.”~ Ambassador Brownfield, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Narcotics and Law Enforcement.  (Photo from Flickr/stateINL).
