Cambodia: Consultancy - External evaluation of the project « Province of Battambang : access to justice for all and protection of the poorest »
Closing date: 2017-03-10Application : Apply for the job
Organization: Avocats Sans Fronti res France
Closing date: 10 Mar 2017
Avocats Sans Fronti res France (ASFF) launched a project in Cambodia, province of Battambang, in cooperation with Region Occitanie/Pyr nn es-M diterran e, This project started at the end of October 2015 and will end on September, 30th 2017.
At this level of execution, ASFF is reflecting on how to move forward with this project and its engagement in Cambodia. While ASFF provides an interim report to its main donor Province Occitanie/Pyr n es-M diterran e, a discussion was started in order to renew funding. With that in mind, an external evaluation is mandatory with regard to an eventual new request for funding thus responding to the concern of ASF France to ensure the availability of good-quality, objective, reliable information on a good use of resources. We have to monitor and analyze the conduct and effects and impacts of our activities in order to learn pertinent lessons from it; to promote an enhanced and constructive dialogue with our partners.
The aim of this external evaluation is to formulate an independent and motivated opinion on the funding granted by the province Occitanie/Pyr n es-M diterran e; in terms of the changes made by ASFF s intervention; to have a reasoned opinion on the possible guidelines / recommendations for a new funding request in order to reinforce the impact of the project.
Following its independence in 1953, Cambodia built its judicial and legal model on the basis of the French model. However, following the advent of the Khmer Rouge regime, in 1975 and two decades of civil war that followed, the legal and judicial system has been severely curtailed, with less than a dozen lawyers having survived the regime.
The country had to wait until 1991 to reach and sign peace agreements; Cambodia celebrates its first elections under the aegis of the United Nations and adopts a new Constitution, marking its first steps towards the establishment of rule of law. Articles 129 and 38 of this Constitution guarantee an independent, impartial justice and the right to a fair trial. In practice, it remains subordinate to the Ministry of Justice.
In the 90 s, numerous political and judicial institutions were set up, such as the Senate, the Constitutional Council, the High Council of the Judiciary and the Bar Association of the Kingdom of Cambodia (October, 16th 1995).
In the late 2000 s and for the purpose of meeting the requirements of good governance, the Cambodian government undertakes administrative, judicial and armed forces reforms. It is at this same moment that Cambodia begins the modernization of its legal system, with the support of international experts with different legal traditions, inheriting a civil code that has been the work of Japanese experts or criminal code from French experts. However, these changes are still very progressive because only 18 laws were adopted in ten years between 1993 and 2003.
Once the framework for the reform of justice has been put in place, with its advances and limitations, there is the question of actors and judicial infrastructures. The fact is that the presence of actors and judicial infrastructures are resources that are rare on the territory. Indeed, in 2007, Cambodia had only 142 judges, 72 prosecutors 328 lawyers and 23 courts of law. Two factors are at the root of this phenomenon: on the one hand, training offers in this sector are very low; and on the other hand, justice is not a priority on the political agenda since barely 0.3 % of the national budget is allocated to this sector. To this lack of infrastructures and human and financial resources are added evils such as corruption, patronage, dependence on political power, lack of respect for human rights by the political power, which fuels lack of confidence of the citizens in the judicial system that prefer to rely on traditional modes to resolve conflicts.
Not only has Avocats Sans Fronti res France led several projects aimed at the Rule of Law reinforcement, lawyers/jurists education development, free legal aid provision, but it also was directly involved in proceedings before the Extraordinary Chambers of the Cambodian Courts (defense of nearly 1200 victims).
All these activities met with great success, enabling the entire Cambodian population to benefit from positive dynamics of the change until 2012.These activities strengthened the Rule of Law by providing trainings for lawyers and magistrates and by setting up a legal aid program in 20 provinces.
Although progress has been made, access to law and to justice still suffers from numerous technical and material obstacles. Indeed, in Cambodia and especially in Battambang province, access to justice and legal aid are a priority. Neither the courts of the province nor those of Phnom Penh, the capital, provide legal offices for the most deprived persons within their premises, as underlined by the Office of High Commissioner for Human Rights in Cambodia.
Another difficulty is that with respect to criminal matter it is mandatory to have a lawyer. It is actually possible for the Bar association president to designate a legal aid lawyer for the poorest defendant; But the small number of lawyers available in the province all too often oblige them to be dispatch from the capital, resulting in additional costs, delays in settling the proceedings and extensions of detention.
Having in mind that Battambang province and the Cambodian capital are furthest apart at almost 294km, that a person lives on less than 1000$ per year and disparities between social classes are high; it is almost impossible people with a low or moderate income is able to afford a lawyer while his/her cost can go up to 1000$ with respect to criminal matters.
Furthermore, the Government provides only 75 000 $ for legal aid department. And on the other hand, the majority of the 837 lawyers are practicing in Phnom-Penh.
To these numerous obstacles must be added cultural and factual elements whose do not promotes access to justice for all. Indeed, Human Right Watch last report has demonstrated that the country's impunity with corruption, arbitrary detentions and the practice of torture are not such as to encourage individuals to assert their rights before national jurisdictions. Moreover, women are even more affected by the lack of access to justice and the lack of effective legal aid because they often disregard their rights and the way to defend themselves, as they are often victims of gender based violence.
1.2 Presentation of the project

Since August 2016, legal advice activities have been extend beyond the doors of the court; and with the support of local authorities, workshops and / or legal offices are organized in many communities around Battambang city.
