Description and results


This project aims to help women, children and other victims of conflict gain better access to justice and contributes to re-establishing peace and stability in Mali. The project supports Malian civil-society organizations in working to ensure that Mali's criminal justice system is able to fairly judge cases of corruption and human rights' crimes. The project seeks to ensure better respect for the human rights of Malians, fight corruption and impunity from crime, and support leaders, especially women and youth, in their reconciliation and conflict prevention efforts. The project also seeks to support reconciliation and dialogue between conflict-affected communities, and works to avoid the outbreak of new violence within Malian society.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (i) human rights advocacy organizations in Malian civil society and justice officials are better trained on violence against women and girls, and help to respect the rights of women, children, and other victims of conflict; (ii) Malian civil society and law professionals help to reduce corruption and impunity in the justice system; and (iii) leaders of Malian society, especially women and youth, influence dialogue between communities and help to reconcile Malians and to prevent conflicts.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2019 include: 1) the implementation of gender-based violence (GBV) awareness sessions, reaching 117,077 people to date, through media (radio) and public events; 2) 88,077 people have been reached to date through public events alone (of whom 57% are women); 3) advocacy actions on the GBV draft legislation developed in 2016-2017 reached 36 decision-makers; 4) four high-profile files on serious violations, rapes, kidnapping, and forced marriage committed by presumed members of armed groups, involving some 100 victims, of whom 62 are children and 16 are minors, were prepared and submitted to judicial authorities; 5) the establishment and strengthening of 28 community-based peace committees facilitated peaceful conflict resolution, and legal aid services were provided for 3,395 people (a 132% increase in the number of recipients); and 6) 461 people, of whom 180 are women (39%), were trained in Bamako and in the regions of Ségou, Mopti, Timbuktu and Gao, in setting up anti-corruption communities of practice. These activities helped strengthen the rights of people affected by the crisis, including women and minors, and helped raise awareness of impunity and corruption that affect Malians’ rights.
