Australia-PNG Law and Justice Partnership

Law and justice partnership launched

The partnership aims to increase the supply of justice services in target locations, addressing the demand of communities through preventative measures and strengthening leadership, coordination and accountability in the law and justice sector of PNG including Australia as well.

The program together with the extended PNG-Australia Policing partnership and Bilateral Security Agreement, represents a significant scale-up in cooperation to respond to PNG’s internal security priorities

New Aus-PNG justice partnership program

The partnership’s Justice Services and Stability for Development or JSS4D program, has reached its conclusion after eight years and the new Australia-PNG Law and Justice Partnership will kick off in January this year.  

The Australian High Commissioner says representatives from the sector joined a Reflections Workshop to share what has worked and what can be improved on in Australia’s support to the Law and Justice sector.
