Enhanced Palestinian Justice Program
As the West Bank’s justice sector becomes more transparent, citizens are becoming more engaged, recognizing their government’s improved efficiency and accountability.
In the last few decades, those in the West Bank’s justice sector have striven to make it more transparent and communicative, hoping to improve public perception of, trust in, and engagement with the sector’s institutions. The USAID Enhanced Palestinian Justice Program built on these efforts to reform courts and further policies such as the country’s Rule of Law National Strategy. With a collaborative and gender-sensitive approach, the project provided training, equipment, and other support across justice sector institutions to help the sector become more fair and responsive to its citizens’ needs.
