Improving Access to Justice in Somaliland
Somaliland Human Rights Centre, together with Saferworld with the support of the Knowledge Platform Security and Rule of Law co-organised a three-day participatory workshop with the Ministry of Justice and the Office of the Chief Justice, to discuss new approaches for improving access to justice in Somaliland. Framing the workshop under the guise of the 2030 Agenda and SDGs provided a new way of talking about justice issues, which enabled a discussion that included the participation of many outside of those traditionally charged with making decisions on justice provision. With representatives of the judiciary from all regions of Somaliland, together with government ministries covering human rights, planning and policing, as well as civil society representatives and expert academics. The workshop produced recommendations for a series of solutions. This one-pager report contains key summary from the workshop.
