The Justice Services and Stability for Development Program (JSS4D) is a four-year program funded by the Government of Australia (GoA) in partnership with the Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG) to support the Papua New Guinea law and justice sector’s goal of a ‘just, safe and secure society for all’.
JSS4D has four broad outcomes that aim to create safer and more secure communities; strengthen law and justice services; address family and sexual violence; and confront corruption.
The JSS4D outcome of addressing family and sexual violence is a key development priority for both GoPNG and GoA. A critical activity in responding to family and sexual violence are functioning and effective referral pathways to assist survivors of violence. JSS4D has been very active in this area supporting training, workshops and providing technical advice to law and justice sector agencies, non-government and faith-based organisations and the private sector.
GoA and JSS4D are interested in funding a range of independent evaluation studies in 2019 to better understand the effectiveness of Australia’s contribution to improved law and justice services. The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness of the referral pathways and the contribution of JSS4D to strengthening the pathways.
