Observations from recent missions
     Reform of the judiciary closely linked with
     EU accession process, politicized
     The reform has been more focused on
     organizational re-structuring and less on
     services delivered and access to justice
     UNDP comparative advantage, neutrality,
     flexible and action oriented
Observations from recent missions
     Strong focus on the criminal justice
     system, less focus on civil and
     administrative justice, lack of trust in the
     Crowded field, but possible for UNDP to
     find its niche

Identifying UNDP niche in the
justice sector
   Capacity to provide justice remedies – focus
   on accountability, non-discrimination →
   access to services for vulnerable groups
   Capacity to demand justice remedies
   Focus on vulnerable groups
Next steps:
   Map projects and focal points at the
   national level
   Possible to identify a joint regional-sub-
   regional focus, priority
   Replicate the work done on NHRIs in
   the CIS, in the Western Balkans
