Strengthening civil society engagement in the justice sector
Civil society organisations have the potential to be an important driver of pro-poor change in Nigeria’s justice sector. The focus of our work is to demonstrate the benefits of a ‘bottom up’ approach in delivering local justice services.
Our work aims to improve the capacity of CSOs to engage more effectively in the sector and ensure that CSOS have a credible and respected voice that enables them to influence justice sector reform and policy development, monitoring/oversight processes and the delivery of services.
