The 2012 crisis exposed Northern Mali to internal displacement of its population, conflict and security situations, and the absence of institutions. Since the peace accord in 2015, there have been progressive signs of stabilization including the uptake of judicial activities in the country.
“It’s about building people’s confidence in the courts,” explained IDLO Director-General Irene Khan on the topic of why judicial independence matters. “What are the issues of independence, integrity, approach, principle, ethics that build people’s trust in the judiciary?”
In the months following the launch of the Liberia National Police fund, an initiative for female police officers to undertake skills training, IDLO has been supporting professional development activities as part of the broader pursuit of access to justice in the country.

Fred Huston, Country Director. Our work in the justice and rule of law arena in Kyrgyzstan in 2016 took place against a backdrop of ongoing public dissatisfaction with the performance of the judiciary. Many people here still try to blame the judiciary for the ills of the country.
