In 2015, the Guinean government adopted the 2015-2019 Justice Reform Strategy. This initiative, which partly focuses on human rights and access to justice, has the specific objective of bringing justice closer to litigants by implementing a judicial system based on the concept of Justice de Proximité or Local Access to Justice. PartnersGlobal and our Conakry based partners, CECIDE and Coginta, are implementing the Partners for Access to Justice project to support the justice reform process led by the Ministry of Justice of Guinea. The program aims to establish Justice Houses throughout different regions of Guinea in order to provide access to justice in communities, particularly in remote rural areas with vulnerable and marginalized populations. The project aims to increase community knowledge and educate citizens on their legal rights by strengthening the institutional sustainability of the Justice Houses and the capacity of the program’s leadership, in turn allowing citizen to increase their confidence in the justice system.
