USAID Justice Activity in Kosovo is a five-year program that aims to strengthen Kosovo’s justice system by applying a people-centered justice approach to improve institutional capacity to provide people access to quality services and multiple means to solve their justice needs and everyday legal problems, and to generate greater public trust in the justice system and the rule of law. Advocacy Training and Resource Center (ATRC) as a subcontractor aims to contribute to quality and accessibility of justice services, citizen understanding, engagement and trust of the justice system and effective innovations in the justice sector.
ATRC will engage communities and practitioners in defining problems and proposing improvements to the delivery of legal services and information to disparate justice seekers where they live and on the issues they often confront. Working through responsible Kosovo institutions, Justice Activity facilitates practitioner forums, including the community of practice for public information officers, to institutionalize critical and practical resources to engage with court users in soliciting their feedback and outreach and information sharing on justice services provision.
Expected results include the improvement of quality and accessibility of justice services, citizen understanding and engagement, trust of the justice system and development of effective innovations in the Justice Sector.
