Enhancing Democratic Rule of Law and Preventing Conflict in Kyrgyzstan

About the project

Enhancing Democratic Rule of Law and Preventing Conflict in Kyrgyzstan Programme (UNDP Kyrgyzstan Rule of Law Programme) is a comprehensive rule of law programme designed to build the capacity of justice and security actors to better implement laws, conduct oversight of government and security services, combat corruption, provide service delivery and security and afford citizens and most vulnerable groups with access to justice, community security and legal empowerment. Conflict prevention, recovery and early warning are key components of the rule of law programme, especially in communities within Kyrgyzstan that suffered violence in 2010 and those prone to continuing inter-ethnic disputes.

The programme is implemented by the Democratic Governance Dimension, comprising the team of international and national experts. The Rule of Law Chief Technical Adviser is assigned to the programme to provide strategic policy advice, guide planning and monitoring and build strategic partnerships.
