Justice Reform in CARICOM - Analysis and Programming Options

In 2007 Prime Minister Harper confirmed Canada's longstanding, special relationship with the Caribbean when he announced that Canada would allocate $600 million for regional development assistance to CARICOM over a 10-year period (2007-2017). As part of its 2007 Strategy for the Americas, Canada treats CARICOM as a region of focus. CIDA’s Caribbean Program is well aligned with Canada’s Strategy for the Americas and centres on two interlinked, thematic priorities – sustainable economic growth and security. Justice reform and CIDA’s cross-cutting themes of gender equality and the environment are integral to both streams. CIDA’s Caribbean Program already responds to many private sector, trade-related needs, but at the time of this assignment the Agency had no regional, justice reform projects in the pipeline.

Model Guidelines for Sexual Offence Cases 1

LAUNCH OF MODEL GUIDELINES FOR SEXUAL OFFENCE CASES IN THE CARIBBEAN REGION

Although progress has been made in the Caribbean region in promoting gender equality, there are still many aspects which remain unresolved, chief among these being sexual violence against women, young girls, and boys. The region experiences high levels of sexual and domestic violence, which are often underreported and ineffectively dealt with by the justice system.

The following is a link directly to our new "Model Guidelines" section which contains a number of documents addressing and dealing with Model Guidelines for Sexual Offence Cases in the Caribbean Region.
