  • Title: Pamodzi - Promoting Rule of Law
    Descriptive info: Background.. Pamodzi is a project-orientated, non-profit Rule of Law initiative established by the Law Society of Ireland and the Bar Council of Ireland.. Originally founded in 2007, the project has collaborated with academics, judges, legal practitioners, policymakers and civil society around the world to advance collective knowledge of the relationship between Rule of Law, democracy, sustained economic development and human rights.. Pamodzi originated in recognition of the increased emphasis placed on Rule of Law in development aid and in response to the number of requests for assistance received by Ireland involving the Rule of Law.. We believe that members of the Irish  ...   word Pamodzi means unity or together in Nyanja, a language of southern Africa.. The name was proposed by the High Court Judge, the Honorable Mr.. Justice Garrett Sheehan.. Judge Sheehan has had particular involvement in Zambia and is an ardent advocate of the ideals upheld by this project.. The term Pamodzi represents our commitment to working in unity with the people we serve.. Rule of Law only stands a chance where account is taken of local context and a tradition of compliance is encouraged on the ground.. Progress is not unilateral therefore we endeavour to work consistently and continuously alongside our overseas colleagues..

  • Title: Pamodzi - Promoting Rule of Law
    Descriptive info: Rule of Law denotes a concrete system of self-government grounded in a stable and accessible legal process.. It features a system based on clear, objective and publicly disclosed laws; and a diverse, competent and independent legal profession.. Effectively the ideal ensures that the government exercises its authority in accordance with a legal framework that assures individual liberty and national development.. Elements of Rule of Law.. The World Justice Project has developed a working definition of Rule of Law based on four universal principles:.. Government officials and agents must be accountable under the law;.. Laws are clear, publicised, stable and fair, and protect fundamental rights, including the security of persons and property;.. The process by which laws are enacted, administered and enforced is accessible, fair and efficient;.. Access to justice is provided by competent, independent, and ethical adjudicators, attorneys, or representatives and judicial officers who are sufficient in number, have adequate resources, and reflect the makeup of the communities they serve.. A breakdown in the Rule of Law, as often seen in developing countries, is usually characterised by an underdeveloped and ill-equipped police force, a fragmented and ineffective legal system, lack of capacity and trust in the government and a deficient prison service.. Development is impeded as economic growth becomes  ...   (MDGs), the United Nations (UN) champions the Rule of Law as a vehicle in bringing about global justice and security.. The MDGs are eight goals that the UN hopes to achieve by 2015 in an effort to respond to the world s greatest development challenges.. The MDGs call on nations to make laws in areas such as gender equality, commerce and the environment, and also call on nations to encourage their communities to abide by those rules through changes in custom.. The UN explicitly acknowledges that achievement of the MDGs rests heavily on the development of Rule of Law, among other factors.. In fact Rule of Law has been recognised not only as a goal itself, but as a means of achieving all eight.. All truly democratic nations aspire to respect the Rule of Law.. Even in countries where basic freedoms are habitually ignored, there is room for hope.. Increasingly, across nations formerly dictated by strife and discord, justice under the law is possible.. However justice does not come easy; it is something to be worked into the political and social conscience through prolonged engagement.. Institutions must be created or reformed, and political will nurtured, to guarantee progress toward fairness and parity and to protect human freedoms and fundamental rights..

  • Title: Pamodzi - Promoting Rule of Law
    Descriptive info: In promoting the Rule of Law in developing countries, Pamodzi seeks to undertake collaborative projects aimed at enhancing the provision and protection of human rights, democracy and good governance.. To date projects have addressed the broad spectrum of Rule of Law: from capacity development of national judiciary to legal aid and legal information at a community level.. While Pamodzi implements projects in an extensive range of substantive areas, we have identified five priority areas on which efforts are concentrated:.. Access to Justice.. Rule of Law is what gives citizens political and legal voice.. This requires mechanisms of redress, so that citizens can claim their rights.. These mechanisms, in turn, depend on the quality of access to justice, due process and minimum levels of effective, equal and predictable application of the law.. Pamodzi primarily focuses on legal aid programmes and the training of legal professionals through the establishment of formal law schools.. Human Rights.. Human rights norms, as delineated in regional and international conventions and instruments, outline the accepted values and standards of treatment of individuals and groups, thereby setting the limits of state power in national contexts.. Rule of Law is seen as directly integral to the implementation of these rights, as Rule of Law is also concerned with the proper exercise of authority and power by the state.. Our work in this area concentrates on education and increasing awareness of international human  ...   resolved efficiently and fairly.. Consequently the predictability and order that Rule of Law promotes in substantive laws is regarded as the stabilising force behind much economic development.. Our work primarily involves capacity building in commercial law practice and procedures.. Improvement of Title to Law and Land Transfer.. The poor can be legally empowered and poverty reduced when enforceable rights over property and other assets are put in place by a transparent, functional system.. It is vital to implement an equal system of rights, obligations and enforcements that enables all citizens to protect their assets and use them to obtain credit, secure investment, raise productivity and protect their rights.. There is also widespread demand for a mechanism to resolve property disputes, especially those involving land, livestock and commercial matters.. Land tenure is a key point of friction while a method of ensuring the predictable enforcement of contracts is also essential to support economic activity.. Pamodzi seeks to assist in projects for the establishment of courts or tribunals to deal with the recognition of property, particularly informal land assets, and realisation of a fair and unequivocal legal framework to deal with land tenure conflicts.. Pamodzi firmly believes that, in advancing sustainable respect for the Rule of Law, a multifaceted, multidisciplinary approach is required.. As such, while harnessing the talent and dedication of legal professionals in Ireland, we hope to further engage with partners from other disciplines..

    Descriptive info: SOUTH AFRICA.. Commercial Law Training.. Commercial law provides the legal basis for one of the most important institutions in organising and stimulating the economy, namely, corporate business entities.. Companies, in various forms, are central to a country s economy and its prosperity for wealth creation and social renewal.. MALAWI.. Prisoners on Remand.. Overcrowding in prisons is a prevailing problem across many nations in Africa, with the practice of holding prisoners on remand compounding the issue.. As a result, in some countries the majority of the prison population is made up of those awaiting trial.. Reports show that prison conditions in Malawi are inhumane and fundamentally breach human rights.. Overcrowding is such that if one prisoner turns over at night, all prisoners must turn over.. KOSOVO.. Professional Law School.. Kosovo's current status is primarily the result of the turmoil of the disintergration of Yugoslavia, particularly the Kosovo War of 1998 to 1999.. Following the 1999 NATO bombings of Yugoslavia, the territory came under the interim administration of the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), most of whose roles were assumed by  ...   women and children lost their lives, 3,561 people sustained serious injury and over 300,000 individuals were displaced from their homes.. ZAMBIA.. Judicial Exchange.. Zambia has moved from being a major copper producer and potentially one of Africa's richest countries at independence in 1964 to one of the world's poorest.. A colonial legacy, mismanagement, debt and disease are said to have contributed to the country's tribulations.. ETHIOPIA.. Legal Training.. In its recent past Ethiopia s problems have primarily arisen out of internal conflict, wide-scale drought and the influx of refugees.. In 1991 the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) took control with the intention of bringing the country toward free-market economic development.. BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA.. Drafting of Court Rules.. BiH is a country recovering from the devastating three-year war that accompanied the break up of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s.. The 1992-1995 conflict centred around opposition of the orthodox Serbian minority in BiH to the country's secession from Yugoslavia, as demanded by its Muslim majority.. Now an independent state, under international administration, BiH is working toward rebuilding its damaged infrastructure and economy..
