The Strengthening Ecuadorian Justice Project (SEJP)

2010-2014

The Strengthening Ecuadorian Justice Project (SEJP) was a three-year initiative funded by the United States Agency for International Development to promote the rule of law in Ecuador. EWMI implemented the program in cooperation with the Ministry of Justice, the Transitional Judicial Council and the judiciary, the Attorney General’s Office, the Public Defender’s Office, and various Ecuadorian NGOs and law schools. EWMI focused its efforts on improving the effectiveness of the criminal justice system through the introduction of streamlined practices and procedures to overcome chronic delays, expanding access to justice for vulnerable groups by strengthening the Public Defender’s Office, and increasing citizen participation in justice reforms. Through the implementation of the above activities, SEJP contributed to developing a more just, effective and accessible justice system that will better serve all citizens of Ecuador.
