Reforming Criminal Justice Delivery in Nigeria Program

The Problem

The Nigerian criminal justice system unfairly impacts the economically vulnerable, causing widespread rights violations from law enforcement to imprisonment. This systemic injustice contributes to a surge in awaiting trial syndrome, overcrowded prisons, and increased recidivism, exacerbated by a lack of effective reformation and rehabilitation efforts within an unsupportive correctional environment.

The Solution

We initiate and establish state-driven reforms within the justice sector to control the influx into the criminal justice system, focusing on policy influencing, preventive justice, promoting alternatives to imprisonment and enhancing access to justice by utilizing technology.
