For several years, ASF has been developing and sharing its expertise with the combined body of all key actors within the justice, human rights, and development sectors in order to play a major role in facilitating and coordinating a harmonious, effective cooperation amongst all such sectors. The challenge of this project is the further development of ASF’s legitimacy within those sectors through the deepening of its expertise and increasing the reach and awareness of the organization in academia and development policy. With this in mind, the research project will capitalize on ASF’s experience and activity according to a multidisciplinary scientific approach. The research project will contribute to repositioning the issue of access to justice towards the core of development policy priorities. This is especially timely in the context regarding the goals for development and implementation on the post 2015 millennium agenda. Scope The project aims to analyze and make explicit the links between access to justice, enforcement of the rule of law, and the progress being made in developing countries. This will be done through evaluation of the impact of ASF and other projects in these states which aim to improve access to justice. This project aims to meet the increasing scrutiny and demand for empirical proof or evidence showing the effects and impact of development projects and initiatives in the field of justice and governance. To do so, the research project will produce various outputs: scientific publications, internal capitalisation, impact studies. Research project and ASF The project will use data and evidence taken from ASF projects (on-going, past, and in development) as well as from its politics and strategies. The analysis, conclusions, and recommendations from the research project will contribute towards developing ASF projects and strategies. The research coordinator thus works closely with ASF strategic coordinators, experts, field staff and partners. Activities and deliverable: All along the course of the project: • Set up and animation of a network (or think tank) made up of academics and other actors focusing on research project findings. • Participation and/or presentation at 5 international conferences (in the field of access to justice, rule of law, fighting poverty in fragile states). • Counsel and scientific support on the quality, evaluation and impact of ASF projects. Year 3: • Scientific publication focusing on the link between access to justice, rule of law and development processes. • (Co-)Organisation of the conference on that thematic with participation of high level actors. • Publication of one or two impact evaluation (written in 2015) with a scientific approach. • Support to the development of projects proposals/country strategies. Year 2: • Impact evaluations of 1 or 2 ASF projects with a scientific approach. • Management of one or two large scale field surveys. • At least one publication on access to justice and rule of law effectiveness (written and accepted). • Support to the development of projects proposals/country strategies with innovative approach, increasing fundraising opportunities. Year 1: • Two ASF internal papers focusing on evaluation, links between ASF & academia and impact. • At least one publication on access to justice and rule of law effectiveness (written and accepted). • Support to the development of projects proposals/country strategies with innovative approach, increasing fundraising opportunities. ;
