Access to Justice

More than a decade after the civil war in Liberia ended, sexual violence remains rife. While rape was systematically used as a weapon of fear and shame during the war, the incidence of sexual violence against women in Liberia today is still one of the highest in the world. Many cases go unreported due to the stigma and fear surrounding these crimes.

IDLO’s work promotes accountability for sexual and gender-based violence by assisting the judiciary with prosecution, court administration, court inspection and jury management; facilitating capacity building for female police officers; and supporting the sexual violence response mechanism.
