The Somalia Joint Justice Programme (JJP), launched in August 2018, is a 30-month programme supporting the Somalia National Development Plan (NDP) 2017-2019 goal to “Establish independent, accountable and efficient justice institutions capable of addressing the justice needs of the people of Somalia.” Since the NDP highlights the challenges faced by women to fully benefit from justice institutions, the JJP seeks to increase access to justice for the most vulnerable groups and particularly women. To this end, the programme will focus on two components. The first one relates to institutions and capacity building of justice actors and institutions to increase their capacities to provider gender responsive services. This will include among others: support to the establishment of special prosecutions cells for Sexual and Gender-based Violence (SGBV) cases, community dispute resolution centres, training of police, prosecutors and police, increase of women personal in justice institutions as well as specific legal reform. The second component will address the social changes needed to support the institutional reforms and seek to strengthen the demand side through legal aid and legal empowerment, transformational training for women leaders and traditional/religious leaders to increase the participation of women in traditional justice mechanisms and support for the establishment of community-based mechanisms to support women seeking justice or redress.
The JJP has been partnering with New York University to measure the impact of the Programme on perceptions, attitudes and behaviours with regard to women’s access to justice. A first baseline study has been conducted in Kismayo and Baidoa and will be expanded to Garowe and Hargeisa. The mid-term and final evaluations will place additional emphasis on perceptions, attitudes and behaviours towards access to formal justice institutions, police, Attorney General Office (AGO) and Courts. ??In complement to the New York University’s study, the JJP seeks to conduct a gender analysis of key justice institutions (formal and informal) regarding their responsiveness to women, children and other vulnerable groups, particularly minority clans and IDPS to facilitate well informed recommendations for implementation by the Joint Justice Programme.
Within this context, UNDP under the auspices of the UN Somalia Joint Justice Programme seeks to engage a Senior National Consultant to conduct the study in collaboration with a Lead Expert.
