Strengthening the Capacity of the Judicial System and Promoting the Rule of Law in Mali is a project of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) with the national implementing partner, the Institut National de Formation Judiciaire (INFJ), which aims to provide support to national stakeholders for a comprehensive reform of the judicial system as part of Mali’s governmental transition.
Supported by the German Federal Foreign Office, UNITAR and INFJ will provide training for a strengthened and modernised Malian judicial system, particularly in its institutional desire to promote the rule of law, a just and equitable society, the effective fight against corruption and impunity and finally national development.
Opening Ceremony and Colloquium
On October 26th, 2021 in Bamako, Mali after a successful Training of Trainers course in the beginning of October, the project officially began with an opening ceremony and a subsequent colloquium on “le contentieux électoral” and in attendance was the Minister of Justice, H.E. Mohamed Sidda Dicko, H.E. Dr Dietrich Pol, and the Director of the Division for Peace at UNITAR, Mr. Evariste Karambizi.
The current transitional phase in Mali is supposed to formally end next year with general elections.
