Advancing Access to Justice for Women and Girls

As we continue to advance our initiatives to combat violence against women and girls in the Pacific Islands, we are scaling our efforts to expose gender bias in the judiciary, improve medical testimony in SGBV cases, and institutionalize a data-driven methodology within local civil society. Rule of law efforts like these improve judicial transparency, strengthen confidence in the law enforcement system, and improve access to justice for women and girls. Significant collaboration around improving judicial accountability is happening at both the regional and local level. The following regional and local organizations have expressed support for ICAAD's data-driven interventions and reporting:

  • Bar Associations
  • UN Women
  • Save the Children
  • South Pacific Lawyer's Association
  • Pacific Island Law Officers' Network (PILON)
  • Pacific Community (SPC)
  • local women's right's organizations

ICAAD has been building stronger relationships with attorney generals offices in the Pacific and with members of the Federal Courts of Australia, sharing the findings of our report on gender bias in the judiciary, the importance of the open access to data, and offering rule of law trainings where appropriate. We are in the process of finalizing memorandums of understanding (MoUs) with the Fiji Women’s Rights Movement, Regional Resource Rights Team, and the Ministry of Health in Fiji.
