Coherent, Open, Responsive, and Effective Justice Program
Since coming to power through democratic elections in 2015, the government of Sri Lanka has publicly committed to reforming the justice system and strengthening the rule of law. To modernize Sri Lanka’s judicial system, the USAID Coherent, Open, Responsive, And Effective Justice Program (CORE Justice) is improving the performance of core justice institutions and actors. Working alongside key stakeholders in the judiciary, government, legal profession, and civil society, the program helps Sri Lankans regain confidence in the justice system’s ability to resolve disputes and remedy rights violations. In turn, the government is meeting the ever-growing demands of Sri Lankan society as it transitions from conflict and centralized rule to a more open, democratic, and peaceful one.
