JP Strengthening the Rule of Law in the oPt: Justice and Security for Palestinian People Reports
JP Strengthening the Rule of Law in the oPt: Justice and Security for Palestinian People Key Documents
This Joint Programme will help develop and maintain the conditions for a viable State of Palestine based on the rule of law and principles of gender equality. The programme will work to enhance the capacities of, and public confidence in, rule of law institutions, strengthening access to justice, security and protection services, especially for women and girls. Interventions are designed with a view to sustainability and linking activities to ‘system-level’ policy development.
Support rests on a supply and demand equation that combines enhanced service delivery by resilient justice and security institutions with the public’s ability to access such services and hold duty-bearers to account. By increasing public confidence in the sector, support is designed to be catalytic, strengthening state-society relations and creating an enabling environment for development. Interventions are informed by a coherent theory of change and characterised by flexibility and responsiveness to institutional changes as a result of political developments. The Joint Programme is oriented around the following seven mutually reinforcing interventions:
The Joint Programme builds on the achievements and findings of its predecessors: the UNDP Rule of Law & Access to Justice Programme in the oPt (2010-2014), the UNDP/EUPOL COPPS Joint Programme (2012-2014), and the UN Women Access to Justice Programme in the oPt (2011-2014). Importantly, the Joint Programme will use baselines captured during these earlier programmes as a means to monitor results and inform future planning.
Building on detailed analysis and experience of the rule of law sector and overall context in the oPt, as well as best practices from elsewhere, the Joint Programme is built upon a number of approaches, which infuse the seven outcomes around which the programme is constructed. These include:
The programme will be implemented in partnership with relevant PA institutions and an array of civil society actors, including the PBA, specific civil society organisations and academic institutions. While UNDP/PAPP and UN Women will be responsible for implementing the programme in accordance with their financial rules and regulations and internal control frameworks, the programme is fully aligned with the PA’s national development goals and the relevant sector strategies, including the National Justice Sector Strategy (2014-2016), the National Security Sector Strategy (2014-2016) and the National Cross-Sectoral Gender Strategy (2014-2016), as well as several other important national strategies including the National Strategy to combat VAW (2011-2019). By doing so, the programme aims to ensure proper buy-in and support at every level, with a view to maximising impact and sustainability of the different activities and interventions.
Aimed at bringing together key actors and stakeholders, a Programme Board will be established to review the strategic direction of the programme, ensuring accountability and proper oversight. The board meetings will also provide a forum for stringent quality control and review of progress. This will entail determining deliverables and achievement of benchmarks, alongside opportunities for fine-tuning and adjustments.
The Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) serves as the Administrative Agent (AA) of the Joint Programme. The AA is responsible for concluding Standard Administrative Arrangements (SAAs) with donors and Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Participating UN Organisations.
Participating Organizations are required to submit final year-end expenditures by April 30 in the following year; Interim expenditure figures are submitted on a voluntary basis and therefore current year figures are not final until the year-end expenditures have been submitted.
