UNDP's Global Programme on Rule of Law and Human Rights

Within UNDP and across the wider UN system, the Global Programme for Strengthening the Rule of Law, Human Rights, Justice and Security for Sustainable Peace and Development is the primary mechanism for the implementation of comprehensive and integrated rule of law and human rights programmes.

Operating via headquarters and at regional and country levels, the Global Programme uniquely combines rule of law, justice, security and human rights expertise, knowledge and ambitions within an overarching umbrella framework for enabling peaceful, just and inclusive societies to ensure that no one is left behind. 

The Global Programme contributes to establishing a culture of respect for the rule of law and embedding human rights principles in UNDP’s work to build integrated and sustainable solutions for people and planet.
