The Government of Canada through The Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (‘DFATD’ or ‘Global Affairs Canada’) is providing assistance to the Government of Jamaica (GOJ) to support justice sector reforms, through a $19.8 Million initiative, called the “Justice Undertakings for Social Transformation (JUST)” Program. The project is currently being implemented by the Government of Jamaica (Ministry of Justice with the Justice Reform Implementation Unit (JRIU) with support from Canada’s Department of Justice (Justice Canada) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). Non-state implementing partners will be integrated into the structure of the JUST in the 2018/19 Fiscal year. The JUST can be divided into three components, as follows:
A) Technical-Legal Assistance Component: This component involves deployment of Canadian technical experts and Justice Canada personnel to Jamaica, to work with the Ministry of Justice, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Courts to address a wide range of matters aimed, at improving the capacity of core justice sector institutions to manage and implement their core business.
B) Institutional Strengthening Component: This component involves strengthening the technical and result-based management capacity of the Ministry of Justice of Jamaica, primarily through the establishment of the Justice Reform Implementation Unit (JRIU).
C) Social Order Component: This component will focus on initiatives aimed at improving the capacity of women and men and girls and boys to equitably access gender-sensitive justice information, advice and services, as well as improving the capacity of citizens, civil society representatives (including women’s rights organizations) and legal professionals to participate in the justice reform process.
