Our work in Justice and Security
Access to accountable, affordable and accessible justice and security services is critical to long term development. The justice sector encompasses a wide range of institutions that form part of an integrated system: from police and prosecuting authorities, to lawyers, the judiciary and prisons.
We believe in adopting a systemic, cross-institutional approach to justice sector development and reform and basing interventions on the sector as a whole. We focus on both the supply and demand sides of justice by strengthening community-based approaches to service provision and dispute resolution and empowering citizens to hold service providers to account.
We are an acknowledged leader in thinking on justice sector reform. Our justice and security work focuses on developing and implementing security and justice reform programmes; providing technical legal assistance and supporting women to access justice.
