The Strengthening Rule of Law Programme (SRLP) supports both supply and demand sides of the rule of law by strengthening justice institutions and citizen rights, and by deepening the ongoing efforts to secure peace and stability in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). The SRLP has recently expanded its geographical outreach to the other parts of Pakistan, i.e. Newly Merged Districts (formerly Federally Administered Tribal Areas), Balochistan. Mapping the trust and confidence of the donors’ community, national counterpart and communities, the SRLP is on the road to emerge a national level programme.
Cautiously, but the SRLP also works with the informal justice system, which keeping in view the expensive and time consuming formal justice system, is a key source of resolving minor disputes at the community level.
The programme supports sustainable peace by improving access to justice in KP, Merged Districts, and Balochistan through effective and accountable justice service delivery.
