Background

UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. On the ground in 177 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.

Organizational Context

Over the past four years UNDP has provided support for both the Government of Indonesia (GoI) and Indonesian civil society to undertake activities that strengthen access to justice (A2J) in multiple ways.  Through the Legal Empowerment and Assistance for the Disadvantaged Project (LEAD), UNDP facilitated the GoI’s formation of the National Strategy on Access to Justice (NSA2J), launched by BAPPENAS in October 2009, and provided grants for NGOs to undertake a range of A2J activities in a number of provinces.  In Aceh province, UNDP has also provided timely and comprehensive access to justice support in the post-tsunami and post-conflict context under the Aceh Justice Project (AJP) by strengthening the institutional capacity of the both the formal and informal justice systems. Both LEAD and AJP projects have been implemented since 2007.

In 2011,  LEAD and AJP were completed, and a new project called “Strengthening Access to Justice in Indonesia” (SAJI), was introduced.   The SAJI project presents the continuation and expansion of these two UNDP projects, and will be geared towards improved access to justice for Indonesian citizens, contributing to the alleviation of poverty, good governance practices, and empowerment of disadvantaged, vulnerable, and marginalized people. 

In accordance with the Jakarta Commitment and the principle of supporting national priorities and policies, the SAJI Project will use the GoI’s National Strategy on Access to Justice (NSA2J) and other relevant Indonesian policy instruments as their guiding framework, which will therefore directly link the policy and local interventions such as the National Action Plan on Human Rights. SAJI will help realize Indonesia’s 2005-2025 Long Term Development Plan, which emphasizes that, consistent with its vision of “A Just Indonesia,” development is to be carried out from the people, by the people and for the people.
The Project

The SAJI Project is developed based on experiences, best practices, and lessons learned from the LEAD and AJP Projects. SAJI consists of the following components:

  • Institutional mechanisms, legal and regulatory framework, and capacities of government institutions strengthened to implement the recommendations and Action Plans of the National Strategy on Access to Justice. 
  • Improved public complaint and grievance handling mechanisms (PCMs) in government institutions at both national and subnational levels.
  • Improve people’s access to state-funded legal aid, particularly for women and vulnerable groups.
  • Improve people’s access to fair and accountable justice services in the community-based justice system.
  • Knowledge management to inform policies and initiatives to effectively strengthen access to justice and to contribute to Indonesian reporting on the implementation of human rights instruments

Portion of the first component will be implemented mainly through the extension of the LEAD Project the umbrella of the SAJI Project. While originally set to expire at the end of December 2011, both UNDP and BAPPENAS have agreed to extend the duration of the LEAD Project until the end of June 2013. This extension is aimed to ensure uninterrupted provision of support for the implementation of the National Strategy on Access to Justice, which was launched at the end of 2009.
