PartnersGlobal Annual Report 2019

Today, levels of violence and political instability reach all corners of the world. We are collectively alarmed by the vitriol and deepening polarization in our societies. Our original commitment to create safe spaces where true discussion and differences of opinions emerge remains critical now more than ever.

This presentation by Javier Carrasco Solís of the Instituto de Justicia Procesal Penal, AC was presented during a PartnersGlobal webinar called “How Criminal Justice Systems Can Prepare for Future Pandemics: A Look at Policing.”

Together with New-Rule LLC and local civil society organizations BudgIT, the CLEEN Foundation, the Public and Private Development Centre (PPDC), and Partners West Africa Nigeria (PWAN), PartnersGlobal is implementing the third phase of the Promoting Civil Society Participation in Anti-Corruption Efforts in Nigeria (Access Nigeria) project. Funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL), the project aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goal 16’s commitments to fight corruption and illicit financial flows, increase transparency, and improve access to information.

Located in the North-West of Nigeria, Kano State is the economic hub of Northern Nigeria. With high poverty rates, few public defense lawyers, expensive legal fees, and a lack of knowledge of available resources, citizens are often unable to access fair legal representation. Funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL), Partners is working closely with Partners West Africa Nigeria (PWAN), the Democratic Action Group, and our strategic partner New-Rule LLC to provide effective legal aid, rights-based education, case data collection and management through the development of a Case Management System (CMS), and increase access to justice for Kano’s indigent community.

Active in Nigeria since 2013, PartnersGlobal is an international non-governmental organization that transforms conflict and promotes access to justice and good governance. Together with New-Rule LLC, a small US-based woman-owned organization with decades of rule of law expertise, Partners West Africa Nigeria (PWAN), and the Network of University Legal Aid Institutions (NULAI), Partners is implementing the Reforming Pre-trial Detention in Kuje Prison project (Reform Kuje).

This audit includes the financial statements of PartnersGlobal for fiscal year 2018.

In a year where fractures and divisions seemed to widen, PartnersGlobal and the Partners Network stepped up to bring diverse groups together, safeguard the space for dialogue that is so pivotal to democracy and work toward a positive peace and development that is inclusive, rights-respecting and just.

PartnersGlobal created the Security: Governance, Accountability and Performance (SGAP) Framework based on the understanding that the functioning of a security system is meant to both ensure stability of the state under traditional notions of security, and promote the citizen security of the stability of the people living within the state.
