Rule of Law Global Programme Annual Report 2011 published
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) launched the Rule of Law Global Programme Annual Report 2011, entitled Strengthening the Rule of Law in Crisis-affected and Fragile Situations. UNDP’s report showcases the results achieved by UNDP’s Global Programme for Strengthening the Rule of Law in Crisis-affected and Fragile Situations in 37 crisis-affected countries. The report notes the fact that a quarter of the world’s population lives in countries affected by armed conflict or organized crime. It emphasizes the strong link between development and protecting people from violence and building legal institutions.
In crisis-affected countries UNDP is working to boost the ability of courts, police, security services, lawyers and ministries to deliver effective services. UNDP also provides support to individuals and nations dealing with the legacy of conflict by assisting truth commissions, reconciliation processes and supporting the prosecution of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
