Institution Building

In 2016, the Somali federal government presented a national development plan for the first time in over 30 years. While there have been signs of progress and stability, the absence of a robust, independent and competent prosecutorial service has contributed to a climate of impunity. 2016 also saw the increased proliferation of both low-level and serious crimes, including terrorism, corruption and gender-based violence, including in camps for internally displaced people.

IDLO is working with both key justice institutions and informal systems across four districts of Somalia so they can fulfil their core functions and strengthen access to justice for citizens.
