UNDP is also implementing the Justice System Progarmme (JSP) and has been supporting the justice sector in Timor-Leste in collaboration with the government, civil society and development partners for more than a decade. Building on the JSP’s concerted efforts to date, JSP Phase IV (2014-2018) aims to consolidate further the rule of law in Timor-Leste by strengthening the institutional capacity and improving access to justice of the vulnerable. The capacity development support focuses on the quality legal education for professionals through the Legal & Judicial Training Centre (LJTC) and reform of the state-owned legal aid system. Continuing the Mobile Justice and the new establishment of access to justice clinics are expected to reinforce access to justice for women and disadvantaged people in rural areas of Timor-Leste.
The justice sector plays a vital role in ensuring democratic consolidation, particularly in promoting public confidence in the country’s political processes and institutions through guaranteeing rights and freedoms and ensuring fair and equitable access to dispute resolution mechanisms. It is important that the public has confidence in the justice sector as an arbiter of electoral disputes and as an actor entrusted with ensuring rule of law where electoral offences or irregularities occur.
Since the successful conduct of national elections in 2017 and 2018, the projects are undergoing activities that would pertain to the post-election scenario in relation to building the capacity of EMBs and justice sector especially courts of Timor-Leste. The projects are addressing the larger context of the socio-political dynamics especially focusing on the issues of women and youth of Timor-Leste.
