The Maldives as a young democracy has witnessed positive reforms and remarkable progress in democratic governance, rule of law and human rights. While these are a positive indication of the nation’s economic growth and development journey, it still has a long way to go as the nation continues to face various socio-economic and governance-related challenges.
The country remains in its formative stages with regard to effective and inclusive governance institutions and processes, consolidation of the rule of law and access to justice. While the need for capacity building of governance institutions is certain, lack of public awareness about the constitution and the role of judiciary further adds to the complexity of the situation. Any reform - democratic, judicial or legal will be most effective when combined with efforts to increase public awareness and knowledge on rights of individual as well as responsibilities of institutions formed under the constitution towards the citizens. An informed civil society is integral to allow for a participatory decision-making process, a key tenant in democratic governance.
UNDP through its Integrated Governance Programme (IGP) continues to support work towards strengthening justice sector, legal framework and capacity building of governance institutions alongside efforts to promote access to justice and an empowered civil society. There is a strong need to continue targeted efforts to promote civil society engagement and fully realize the powers of citizens as defined by the constitution.
