UN Women recently launched a new project in collaboration with the Arab Women’s Legal Network (AWLN), the Ministry of Justice, Judicial Council, Judicial Institute, and Jordanian Bar Association, to support systems, policies, procedures and mechanisms that seek to increase respect for the rule of law and women's human rights. It will focus on enhancing the capacity of judicial professionals – including judges, prosecutors and lawyers – and coordinating with security forces to better deal with survivors of violence. The project is designed to establish systems and mechanisms capable of filling the gaps in the justice chain, which will enhance access to justice for all survivors and victims of violence regardless of their residential status.
