Welcome to the International Justice Mission's career site on Impactpool!
International Justice Mission is an international, non-governmental organization focused on human rights, law and law enforcement. Founded in 1997 by lawyer Gary Haugen of the United States, it is based in Washington, D.C.
International Justice Mission has 17 field offices in Africa, Latin America, South Asia and Southeast Asia, and five partner offices in North America, Europe and Australia. All IJM employees are required to be practicing Christians; 94% are nationals of the countries they work in.
IJM works to combat sex trafficking, child sexual assault, cybersex trafficking, forced labor slavery, property grabbing, and police abuse of power, and addresses citizenship rights of minorities. The bulk of IJM's work focuses on sex trafficking. IJM's close coordination with third-world police agencies and the resulting arrests and deportations of sex workers have generated criticism from human rights and sex worker organizations over its mission and tactics.
