The Raoul Wallenberg Institute has for over 20 years cooperated with justice sector institutions throughout the world and has gained exceptional experience and know-how of how to best support justice sector institutions in the field of human rights. Police, prosecutors, judges, lawyers, prisons and justice sector training academies have all been supported by the Institute’s bilateral and regional capacity development programmes.
By its long-term commitment and focus on building good and equal partnerships with justice sector institutions, the Institute has been very successful in strengthening different capacities of partner institutions. In cooperation with internationally leading experts, both practitioners and academics, the Institute provides customised support based on needs of partner institutions. Examples of support provided to justice sector institutions over the years are:
