IDLO will strengthen the recruitment of women in the judiciary and legal professions, including by strengthening knowledge on the barriers and pathways for women in the justice sector and by enhancing the capacity of women justice actors. Specifically, it will: Disseminate the findings of it global research on enhancing participation of women justice professionals by organizing policy events at global or local levels (2 per year); Launch country-specific studies on contributions and barriers women justice professionals face when delivering justice (2).
