BACKGROUND:

In 2012, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Pakistan began implementation of the Strengthening Rule of Law Project (SRLP) in the post-crisis area of Malakand Division, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). Based out of Peshawar, the Project has expanded its remit to include three additional districts, Kohat, Bannu & DI Khan in KP as well maintaining project activities in all 7 districts of the Malakand Division.

The SRLP is unique, having a 25% cost-sharing agreement with the KP Provincial Government, indicative of strong government commitment and partnership. The Project is focused on four main outputs: (i) enhancing access to justice and legal aid; (ii) building the capacity of courts for greater service delivery; (iii) supporting ‘informal’ justice mechanisms to provide just and speedy services and (iv) strengthening police and prosecution capacity. The strengthening police capacity output of SRLP is funded by the European Union (EU) and the United States Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL) and focuses on improving service delivery by the KP police to the citizens of the province.

The KP province and adjacent tribal areas have been severely affected by the prevailing conflicts in the region since the early 2000s. The insurgency in tribal areas led to mass displacement of the local population and urban areas saw a rapid increase in population. The Malakand Division also faced militancy in late 2000s which was brought under control after an extensive military operation. The Post Crisis Needs Assessment (PCNA) conducted by the government of Pakistan recommends that along with economic development interventions, equal emphasis should be given to strengthening the rule of law.

The Strengthening Rule of Law Project has adopted a diverse approach of interventions for the capacity building of the police department, and has identified the need to place special emphasis on the training and development of police officers.
