The General Department of Prisons (GDP) of the Ministry of Interior (MoI) introduced its first Strategic Plan for 2008-2013 following the adoption of the Prison Reform Policy Framework in 2008. In 2013, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) supported GDP in the development of its 2014-2018 Strategic Plan by providing feedback on the drafts and helping organize a stakeholders’ consultation that brought together civil society and other partners of the General Department. The final 2014-2018 Strategic Plan included a finer assessment of previous achievements and remaining challenges and reflected a greater emphasis on dynamic security and the correction and rehabilitation of prisoners based on human rights principles.
Following five years of implementation, the time has come to review again achievements and identify those activities and targets which have not been effectively implemented due to various reasons, including limited access to financial and human resources, staff reshuffling and institutional restructuring as well as limited cooperation among prison stakeholders.
To take stock and conduct an evaluation of the progress and performance of the ending 2014-2018 strategic plan, an external review exercise is requested by GDP in December 2018 so as to ensure that the gaps and shortcomings are correctly identified and help build the next five-year plan based on the review findings, the Law on Prisons and relevant primary and secondary legislation as well as the international human rights standards and rules applicable in Cambodia.
