Rule of Law, Human Rights, Justice and Security for Sustainable Peace and Development
Within UNDP and across the wider UN system, the Rule of Law, Security and Human Rights team is the primary implementor of comprehensive and integrated rule of law and human rights programmes. Operating via headquarters and at regional and country levels, the team uniquely combines rule of law, justice, security and human rights expertise.
We support UNDP Country Offices and Regional Hubs, and work with governments, civil society and business entities to make the rule of law and respect for human rights a global reference point and enabler for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The programming is implemented through the Global Programme for Strengthening the Rule of Law, Human Rights, Justice and Security for Sustainable Peace and Development, Phase IV, which commenced in 2022 and is guided by and aligned to the UNDP Strategic Plan for 2022-2025. The Global Programme is a platform for partnerships across the UN system, enabling more coherent, collaborative and integrated rule of law and human rights efforts in line with UNDP’s designated ‘integrator’ role and in support of the One-UN approach.
