This report presents the assessment findings of the DGTTFsupported Indonesia project Strengthening Access to Justice and the Rule of Law (A2J Assessment Project). The country study is an assessment and not a project evaluation. It provides an overall analytic review of results, rather than an evaluation of progress. It aims mostly to internalize and collect valuable information, and to analyze and document country office experiences with a view to strengthening knowledge management.
The team reviewed documents, annual progress reports and evaluation reports, and conducted interviews with partners, donors, indirect beneficiaries, and UNDP country office staff. With DGTTF funding of $100,000 in 2004, an A2J Assessment Project to assess A2J for the most disadvantaged populations in five Indonesian provinces was undertaken jointly with the National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) and the Centre for Rural and Regional Development Studies at Gadjah Mada University (PSPK-UGM) to better understand and promote access to justice in Indonesia.
The A2J Assessment Project was found successful in applying innovative strategies that have led to a major programme on A2J, supported not only by UNDP core funding but also by donors and with strong government commitment. The project and its products are a best practice example of human rights-based programming for A2J. The project was greatly influenced by the regional AP-A2J Initiative and benefited from close involvement of key country office staff in the community of practice (another product of the initiative), as well as from regional human rights-based approach workshops.
