POGAR > Activities and Projects > Modernization of Public Prosecution Offices Initiative

In general, this model project aims at improving the systems that are entrusted with protecting citizen’s security and safety in the Arab States within the confines of respect for the rule of law, public access to justice, and protection of human rights. This aim could be achieved through suggesting a set of solutions, ideas and proposals that will be tested during the life-span of the project. Lessons learned from this project and its findings will be submitted to participating Arab states, and could be of benefit to other Arab States who are working on enhancing the rule of law in their respective countries.

The initiative was launched in Cairo in May 2005 in four Arab countries (Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, and Yemen). It was later extended in 2006 to include Lebanon and in 2007 to include Algeria and Iraq.
