Technical Support and Cooperation with the General Procuracy

31 Oct 2016

Funding and spending patterns of the General Procuracy of the Kyrgyz Republic (GP) have remained relatively invariable since Kyrgyzstan became an independent state in 1991. Stagnant funding has had negative implications for the GP, and the Prosecutors’ Training Center (PTC) requires support to train and retrain prosecutors in accordance with changing Kyrgyz legislation and international human rights standards. Additionally, gender inequalities within the GP remain a significant challenge.

With funding from the United States Department of State, IDLO is building the capacity of the GP through training, gender mainstreaming and leadership development, and budget realignment to prepare prosecutors to respond fully to justice needs in Kyrgyzstan.
