Delivering Justice in Somalia

IDLO has been assisting the Ministry of Justice in developing a framework to enshrine the rule of law. In particular, we collaborated with the Ministry, the judiciary and other institutions to develop of a two-year Justice Sector Action Plan. The initiative was designed to help strengthen institutional capacity lay the foundations for a sustainable and effective justice system.

IDLO produced a planning strategy and a preliminary needs assessment, and organized a conference on the justice sector in Mogadishu to explore policies and practices. After consultation with key stakeholders, the final Action Plan was presented to a multilateral conference, jointly convened by the Somali and the UK government, in London in May 2013.
