Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

To propose a dedicated project that specializes in diagnosing and addressing the special needs and interests of women, children, the poor, and the other vulnerable groups in the justice system. Such a project will comprehensively look at the different ways that women and other disadvantaged groups engage the justice system, not just in a court hearing. It will address discriminatory and inequitable practices from the perspective of these groups as complainants, witnesses and accused persons. It will inclusively diagnose their problems from crime reporting to police investigation, to prosecution, trial, and incarceration or rehabilitation. This is a very ambitious project given its scope and reach, and it should strongly engage CSOs and local beneficiary groups throughout the project design, implementation, and monitoring stages in order to truly identify gender-sensitive modalities and nuanced interventions that could help underserved and marginalized people

2

To focus on the cross-section of justice administration and the environment. This is the age of Sustainable Development with climate action and concern for the environment elevate to the forefront of the global development agenda. With Indonesia’s significant natural resources under constant siege from illegal logging, illegal fishing, industrial pollution, and land grabs, the role of courts in safeguarding these national assets and the public interest cannot be overemphasized. A dedicated project in the environmental domain can affect the welfare and livelihoods of many people and receive strong public support and media attention. If well managed, it can truly demonstrate the value of the judiciary and build public trust in the courts

3

To work on the nexus between fighting corruption and building integrity. The Evaluation Team recommends a project specifically targeted at building integrity in the judiciary. Leveraging on the successes of SUSTAIN in controlling corruption through enhancing transparency, accountability, leadership development and supervision, this project aims to strengthen the integrity of the actors in the judicial system. Three possible components of this project include the promulgation and enforcement of a universal code of conduct for all judicial officers; a country-wide public communications plan that highlights the standards of judicial conduct and publishes the standards for judicial services; and an institutionalized system of training in judicial ethics and professionalism to reach officers at all levels and in all regions. This project can bridge the chasm between the courts and civil society, by including CSOs and the media as partners for strengthening external oversight and monitoring of the judiciary.

UNDP Indonesia has initiated a series of discussion across unit in country office, to develop project on the cross-section of justice administration and the environment. Capitalizing UNDP’s previous initiative by the Environment Unit on Multi Door project, which collaborate with the Attorney General Office in handling environment-crime cases, a cross-unit collaboration between the Natural Resource Management Cluster at the Environment Unit and the Justice Cluster at DGPRU is foreseen as necessary.

In the area of judicial integrity, UNDP Indonesia currently collaborates with UNDP Bangkok Regional Hub to support the strengthening “Judicial Integrity Network in ASEAN” as platform for knowledge sharing, good practices and tools to enhance judicial integrity, transparency and other aspects of court excellence which build public trust. This will include expanding membership and exploring potential cooperation with relevant global and regional bodies such as the Global Judicial integrity Network and the Council of ASEAN Chief Justices. Furthermore, this initiative also provides support to enhance judicial integrity, transparency and court excellence, through self-assessments facilitated by peers and expert members of the Network, using the International Framework for Court Excellence and Judicial Integrity Checklist
