Justice Sector Working Group (JSWG)
 

The main purpose of the JSWG is to act as a forum for coordination and exchange between donors and the PA on issues related to the justice sector, which comprises the Ministry of Justice, the High Judicial Council and the General Prosecution. The key functions of the JSWG are as follows:

  • assist donors in aligning assistance in relation to national plans (PRDP) and strategies for the sector;
  • support the development and updating of sector strategies within the framework of national plans and budgets;
  • coordinate and harmonize donor assistance to prevent duplication;
  • carry out coordinated and strategic dialogue with the purpose of identifying PA priorities and the readiness/availability of the donor community to fund related programmes;
  • function as the main source of information for needs and achievements, donor funding and gaps in the justice sector;
  • develop joint indicators and sector reviews for sector monitoring and programme-based approaches.
  •  

    The JSWG reports to the Governance Strategy Group (GSG) on a regular basis.

    Membership in the group is limited to donors and other institutions (e.g. non-governmental organizations, academic institutions) who can add substantial financial or analytical value, as well as relevant PA institutions.
