IDLO welcomes Mali as new Member Party

Rome, November 28, 2017 – The Republic of Mali has joined the International Development Law Organization (IDLO), the only intergovernmental organization exclusively devoted to promoting the rule of law.

Mali’s accession took place during IDLO’s annual meeting of the Assembly of Parties, hosted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in Rome on November 28, 2017.

“Today is a big day for us and our country,” said H.E. Bruno Maiga of Mali. “My thanks and all my gratitude go to IDLO for all they have done in Mali.”

Community justice in Uganda

Like other countries on the African continent, the Ugandan justice sector faces many challenges. Citizens demonstrate a widespread distrust towards formal justice institutions, which are perceived as corrupt, removed from the communities, expensive and slow to resolve disputes. This lack of confidence in the formal system leads people to resort to other means to seek recourse, and may also increase the likelihood of violence and further corruption.
