Supporting Myanmar's Attorney General's Office and Supreme Court

12 Feb 2016

IDLO is supporting the training departments of the Myanmar Union Attorney General’s Office (UAGO) and the Office of the Supreme Court of the Union (OSCU) to strengthen their capacity development strategies. The long-term goal is to help justice sector institutions implement their strategic priorities of modernizing training programs by improving the knowledge, skills and abilities of judges, law officers and court staff, and enhancing their professional development.

This includes conducting a needs assessment, the development and operationalization of capacity development strategies, providing training of trainers and mentoring support to current trainers, and supporting a curriculum review of existing institutional training programs. In addition, IDLO is supporting the UAGO and OSCU as they integrate fair trials standards into their recruitment and training courses curricula for officials at the state/regional level. It is also delivering training courses on fair trial and prosecutorial ethics for law officers in four regions and states.

IDLO is implementing the project together with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and in coordination with the training departments of both UAGO and OSCU. In January 2016, IDLO signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the UAGO.
