Strengthening Women Judges’ Capacity to Provide Judicial Leadership on Gender and Access to Justice.
In October 2014, the IAWJ launched a new program called Strengthening Women Judges’ Capacity to Provide Judicial Leadership on Gender and Access to Justice. This program is one component of a larger Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Program awarded to the International Legal Assistance Consortium (ILAC) and funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida).
Along with the IAWJ, the ILAC Mena Rule of Law Program’s partners include such organizations as the International Bar Association, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute, the CEELI Institute of Prague, the American Bar Association and the IAWJ. The program is divided into several sub-projects, and in a first phase ILAC and its partners focus on the following:
- Supporting applications of human rights principles in MENA court rulings
- Strengthening women judges’ capacity
- Capacity building and support of the Libyan Human Rights Council
- International Criminal Law in Tunisia
- Training of Tunisian Judges
- Capacity and effectivity of Tunisian Anti- Corruption Agency
