Options for Legal Aid Programming in the Maldives

07 Aug 2014

This working paper, ‘Options for Legal Aid Programming in the Maldives’, aims to explore mechanisms for the government of Maldives fulfil its constitutional obligations to provide free criminal defence in cases of serious criminal offences. It attempts to identify the needs, challenges, and the way forward towards establishing a legal framework, that would facilitate the smooth functioning of Legal Aid. This is also a part of UNDP’s Integrated Governance Programme (IGP)’s multiple diagnosis studies carried out in 2012 to identify gaps and provide options for the government of Maldives in strengthening rule of law and access to justice.
