he Justice Law and Order Sector (JLOS) is considering the establishment of an Ombudsperson for Children. The Children Ombusperson will serve as a focal person and an independent entity that promotes the interests of children, ensures that the government complies with international and national provisions on children’s rights, advocates for children’s rights and creates awareness on children’s rights. This was revealed during a meeting between JLOS institutions, development partners and a UNICEF Legal Advisory delegation from Norway held at the Family Division of the High Court in Kampala on January 16, 2013. http://www.jlos.go.ug/index.php/component/k2/item/348-jlos-considering-ombudsman-for-children

Deepening Reforms for a Pro People Justice System in Uganda
Introduction
Following almost two decades (1966-1986) of political, civil and economic regress in Uganda, there was an extensive breakdown of functions of the state including the maintenance of law and order. Governments then failed to provide the requisite infrastructure, logistics, personnel, legal and policy direction to legitimate state institutions to effectively execute their mandate.

This period was characterized by: Chronic systemic constraints that delayed and hampered access to justice and service delivery, effective planning and budgeting; Antiquated methods and tools of investigations and prosecution,; The high cost of justice due to corrupt practices and limited proximity to the justice delivery agencies by end-users; Case backlogs and high prison populations; Inefficiencies and lack of effective procedural guidelines and performance standard in Justice delivery institutions as well as significant gender-based discrimination.

To stem the tide (i.e. the above stated six constraints in the justice delivery chain, amongst others), the Justice Law and Order Sector JLOS was born!! JLOS is a sector wide approach adopted by Government bringing together institutions with closely linked mandates of administering justice and maintaining law and order and human rights, into developing a common vision, policy framework, unified on objectives and plan over the medium term.

It focuses on a holistic approach to improving access to and administration of justice through the sector wide approach to planning, budgeting, programme implementation, monitoring and evaluation.

The sector comprises of: Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs (MOJCA); Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA); The Judiciary; Uganda Police Force (UPF); Uganda Prison Service (UPS); Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP); Judicial Service Commission (JSC); The Ministry of Local Government (Local Council Courts); The Ministry of Gender, Labor and Social Development (Probation and Juvenile Justice); The Uganda Law Reform Commission (ULRC); The Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC); The Law Development Centre (LDC); The Tax Appeals Tribunal (TAT); The Uganda Law Society (ULS); Centre for Arbitration and Dispute Resolution (CADER) and The Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB)

 We (JLOS) started off with a Strategic Investment Plan (SIP I 2001/01 – 2005/06) to address the constraints and at its lapse we introduced the Second Sector Strategic Investment Plan (SIP II 2006/07 – 2010/11). Currently, the Sector is implementing the Third JLOS Strategic Investment Plan (SIP III 2012/13 - 2016/17).


Bragging rights
Uganda’s Justice Law and Order sector is a significant innovation now in operation for over 10 years as a holistic Government approach focused on improving the administration of justice, maintenance of law and order as well as the promotion, protection and respect of human rights.
