Since 2012, the Global Focal Point arrangement for Police, Justice and Corrections
Areas in the Rule of Law in Post-Conflict and other Crisis Situations (GFP) has brought together complementary capacities in efforts to improve support to the rule of law on the ground, with a view to preventing the outbreak, escalation, continuation and recurrence of violent conflict.

The GFP arrangement acts as a single entry point for UN system-wide rule of law assistance. This arrangement has the following benefits:

-   It  responds  more  effectively  to  requests  for  complex  and
politically  nuanced  assistance  by  bringing  together  DPKO’s
operational expertise and UNDP’s programming and institution-
building skills.

-   It draws quickly and strategically on the expertise of GFP partners
such as UN Women, OHCHR, and UNODC.

-   It mobilizes and channels more resources from donors for joint
programming.

-   It increases leverage with national authorities.
