Donor Activities in Strengthening Access to Justice in the Sahel
This study seeks to provide a description of the access to justice initiatives that are being implemented in Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali and Niger. The research for this report has examined key multilateral donor websites and bilateral donor websites for information on justice programming in the four countries. Programmes that explicitly mention justice, especially access to justice, were the focus of this review; other broader rule of law or countering violent extremism programmes for the four target countries were mostly omitted. The review has focused on programmes currently being implemented or that have completed in the last year or so. An indepth, comprehensive and systematic survey of programmes was beyond the scope of this study. Therefore, this review is not exhaustive, and is only able to present information that is publicly available.
