Civil society organisations (CSOs) have the potential to be an important driver of pro-poor change in Nigeria’s justice sector. The focus of our work is to demonstrate the benefits of a bottom-up approach in delivering local justice services.
We aim to improve the capacity of CSOs to engage more effectively in the sector. We also ensure that CSOs have a credible and respected voice that enables them to influence justice sector reform and policy development, and monitor processes and the delivery of services.
