Training Workshop on Use of the Gender Bench Book and EVAWG Legislations, 12th - 13th December, 2017

The Judicial Training Institute (JTI) in partnership with UN WOMEN is undertaking a project titled ‘Capacity Strengthening for delivery of Gender Responsive Justice Services in the Uganda Judiciary' . The project aims at creating an enabling legislative and policy environment in line with international standards on EVAW, women’s access to justice and other laws and policies protecting women against other forms of discrimination translated in to action. It will also address the gender gaps in delivering justice with a focus on addressing judicial officers and other justice agencies’ inability to translate gender into concrete benefits for the women. 

 To achieve this aim, one of the key output activities is to train judicial officers and Justice Law and Order actors at the national level from sampled high circuits on the use of the Gender Bench Book(GBB) which was launched in 2016 and other national and international EVAWG legislations.This particular Training will target over 40 High Court Judges and Registrars
