|Overview : |
Program/Project: With a view to advancing reconciliation processes in Liberia through the national law reform agenda and promoting parliamentary oversight, OHCHR, UNDP and UN Women as part of a joint project: Advancing Reconciliation through Legislative Reforms and Civic, funding by the Liberia Multi-Partner trust Fund (LMPTF) have agreed to put in place a comprehensive capacity development support programme targeting relevant legislative committees, Legislative Drafting Bureau (LDB), Legislative Budget Office (LBO), Legislative Information Service (LIS) and the Law Reform Commission to strengthen their oversight functions and capacities to discharge their mandate in supporting legislative reforms and strategic actions to address conflict triggers. Whilst at least sixteen (16) conflict factors have emerged in various policy related documents and conflict mapping reports, the need for strategic actions to improve national reconciliation, peace, social justice and legal reforms cannot be over-emphasised. At the same time, supporting the government to address the wanton disrespect and disregard for human rights, which has been flagged as a one of the key reasons that led Liberia to civil war (PRS page 24), promoting transitional justice processes especially related to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) report as well as fostering civic engagement and participation through county consultations, remain indispensable. It is in this regard that this project takes a holistic approach to reconciliation by undertaken activities that bring together legislative, political, economic reforms, social justice and reconciliation.
