Access to Justice in Kenya

The Constitution of Kenya requires the Government to facilitate access to justice for all citizens, as it remains a critical pillar for poverty reduction and sustainable development. To this end, IDLO has been supporting the Kenyan judiciary since April 2012 to strengthen its capacity to administer and enhance access to justice for all Kenyans.

IDLO has worked to strengthen the capacity of judicial officers, as well as the technical capacity of the judiciary to use ICT so that citizens have increased access to information. IDLO has also supported the judiciary through the Directorate of Public Affairs and Communication to ensure more strategic, streamlined communications across the judiciary, improve its perception by the general public and better communicate the advancements and reforms made.
