The organization is based in Rome, but is also present in The Hague (Holland) and is represented at the United Nation in New York and Geneva. The International Development Law Organization was founded in Rome in 1983; originally called International Development Law Institute, its main task was providing technical assistance to developing countries. In 1998, the institute was refounded as an international intergovernmental organization to allow governments  to strengthen institutions to achieve justice, peace and sustainable development, a task that it still has. The organization tries to make the courts more accessible and thus help the countries in drafting a national Constitution. For this reason the International Development Law Organization deals with commercial law, intellectual law, environmental law and every other area of domestic and international law. Currently IDLO works in dozens of countries in America, Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Middle East and North Africa and Sub-Saharan Africa.
