|Access to justice|
The Access to Justice Project supports both technical assistance and capacity development at the government and local community level. This includes support to the Attorney General, Law Reform Commission and the Somaliland Parliament Juridical Committee to improve the capacity to monitor the effectiveness of courts, as well as to the Ministry of Justice and Prosecutor’s Office to ensure high quality justice dispensation. As part of an outreach campaign and to bridge different justice systems, UNDP also supports engagement with traditional authorities to enhance their understanding of modern human rights and women’s rights ’ which should encourage higher quality justice dispensation. At the community level, the project actively supports the provision of free legal aid to vulnerable groups, through support to universities, NGOs and paralegals.
