The Australia – Indonesia Partnership for Justice (AIPJ) is a five year program funded by Australian Aid with a current closing date of December 2015.
The strategic focus of AIPJ is on realizing the rights of all Indonesians, in particular poor women, vulnerable children and people with disabilities. Building on the successes of previous Australian law and justice programs, AIPJ focuses on the following rights:
· Legal identity (birth, marriage and divorce certificates) as one precondition to realising basic economic and social rights, such as education and health care;
· The right to fair proceedings which are independent and impartial, fast, consistent, affordable, and accessible; and
· The right to legal information.
AIPJ is now accelerating implementation due to demand from subnational governments and civil society partners. It has also learnt from experience to date the significant challenges in program delivery across multiple provinces and remote villages. The Lead Adviser and Director PUSKAPA, who together provide technical leadership of the program, are both based overseas. This has all placed additional project management demand on AIPJ and we are looking to recruit for a period of 6 months an experienced development manager. This will also ensure a smooth transition of some functions of the program to KOMPAK, consistent with the AIPJ2 draft design document and advice from DFAT.
AIPJ approaches realizing rights by working in partnership with key government institutions (the supply side) as well as civil society and local communities (the demand side), and the intersection between the two. It does so through seven operational programs: legal identity, court reform, legal aid, legal information, and anti-corruption, civil society strengthening and disability inclusion. These programs operate at both the national level, where decisions are made, and the sub-national level, where lessons from the field can inform national level decision making.
