Rule of Law Fund: Programmatic Framework

The Programmatic Framework for the Indonesia-Netherlands Rule of Law Fund builds on the Indonesian Government National Long-Term Development Plan (RPJPN 2005-2025) and continues the efforts of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Jakarta to support the consolidation of the rule of law and reform agenda. The RPJPN’s vision for a “just and democratic” country encourages development that ensures the rule of law is fair, consistent, non-discriminatory, serves the public interest and supports the continuation of democracy.

Strengthening Enforcement of Court Decisions in Mongolia

Mongolia’s rapid economic and social growth over the last few years is threatened by low-quality and unenforced court decisions. Despite a series of judicial reforms launched by the Government, Mongolia still lacks the legislative framework necessary to enforce court decisions or a strategy to address a growing caseload. Moreover, bailiffs’ inadequate legal knowledge and skills weaken the credibility and efficiency of the judiciary system and impede its proper functioning.

Combating Gender-Based Violence in Mongolia

Despite having reached satisfactory standards of democracy and improved the respect for human rights, Mongolia faces some serious issues in addressing high levels of domestic violence against women. Mechanisms and services for protection of and support to victims of domestic violence are still very limited. A lack of training, procedural guidelines and inter-agency coordination between justice sector actors often creates obstacles for victims and hinders an efficient response to domestic abuse.
