The UN Global Focal Point for Police, Justice and Corrections is at the Crossroads
In 2012 the Global Focal Point for Police, Justice and Corrections Areas in the Rule of Law and Other Crisis Situations (GFP) was established by the UN Secretary-General. The main rationale behind the GFP’s creation was to improve the UN’s delivery of police, justice and corrections services in more consistent ways where policy, expertise and funding could be better utilized.
This FBA brief examines the GFP and its ability to enhance the UN’s rule of law capacity in the field.
More than a year and a half since its inception, the GFP is at the crossroads where its added value to influence change in the field will determine its raison d’être and future direction. The time is both opportune and critical.
