Our Loation

Governance and Access to Justice

The UN is working with the Government of Kenya towards ensuring gender is mainstreamed in the governance systems with a focus on strengthening institutional capacities on rule of law and access to justice and strengthening the electoral processes and capacities of Kenyans to engage politically and socially. Despite recognition of gender equality in the constitution such as the 2/3rds gender rule that is yet to be implemented, women still face structural and socio-economic challenges in participating effectively in decision-making and leadership.

Goal

By 2022, the culture of constitutionalism is strengthened in Kenya, underpinned by improved governance, respect for human rights, and a justice and rule of law system that is inclusive, accountable and empowering especially to vulnerable groups.
