Strengthening access to justice, rule of law and promoting human rights are cornerstones of UNDP’s work to achieve sustainable human development. The UNDP Pacific Office in Fiji is implementing projects as part of an overall programme in these areas including the Fiji Access to Justice Project. The Fiji Access to Justice Project supports access to justice for impoverished and vulnerable groups through empowering people to access legal rights and services through the relevant key justice institutions, in conjunction with strengthening those key justice institutions to undertake improved service delivery.
The objective of this consultancy is to work with the Judicial Department to carry out a needs assessment for a Training Academy, and develop the framework for the establishment of a Judicial Training Academy in Fiji.
This consultancy will contribute to the following outputs and activity results in the Fiji Access to Justice Project:
Output 2: Enhanced institutional capacity of Judicial Department and other institutions to deliver access to justice for impoverished and vulnerable groups.
Activity Result 2.2: The capacity of the Judicial Department is strengthened to enable improved service delivery and responsiveness to priority areas identified by the Access to Justice Assessment.
Activity 2.2.3: Support to the Judicial Department in accessing and hosting international and regional knowledge networks in relation to access to justice.
Activity 2.2.4: Support to the Judicial Department in the production and implementation of a training plan and train the trainer programme, and the evaluation of its subsequent impact; with the design of the training plan to be responsive to priority areas identified by the Access to Justice Assessment.
Activity 2.2.5: Support to the Judicial Department in the production of a feasibility study on the creation of a judicial training institute.
The Judicial Department currently runs training programmes internally and works with international institutions in Fiji for trainings on an ad hoc basis. The Judicial Department is interested in formalizing the trainings programmes carried out under its Training Unit, strengthening the training programmes provided to the Judicial Department officials – judges, magistrates and court and support staff. A five-year roll out plan could be expanded to include other justice and legal officials within Fiji and throughout the Pacific Region.
The Judicial Department is seeking to conduct a mapping of training needs, and develop a framework for the establishment and growth of a strong Judicial Training Academy to service the needs of judicial and justice officials throughout Fiji and supporting knowledge exchange across the Pacific Region.
