Eurojustice is currently the largest program supporting access to justice and the fight against impunity in the Republic of Honduras. The program has 2 main components:

  1. Justice Support Project (JUSTHO) Sector was implemented by Development Poles and their partners through an International Assistance.
  2. Project to combat impunity and support for Transparency (PIT) AECID implemented through a delegated cooperation mechanism with funds from the European Union.

Eurojustice general objective is to contribute to national efforts to combat impunity for corruption and violent crime and ensure the Honduran population access to an efficient, effective, transparent and reliable promoter of social equity justice.

To the attainment of this objective, Development Poles provide specialized technical assistance services in order to accompany the reform of the security sector and justice in Honduras, supporting the development of the institutional capacity of the sector to ensure efficient and effective public service within a framework of transparency and accountability.

Through these services, the following results were achieved:

  1. Strengthened the capabilities of: prosecution and conviction of corruption and violent crimes affecting the Honduran citizens.
  2. Expanded access to justice for vulnerable groups, through a better service to citizens.
  3. Mechanisms strengthened audit, internal control and oversight of social justice operators.

One line of action in this innovative project is the provision of standardization and technological solutions for the Honduran judiciary. In particular: Development Poles provided specialized technical assistance services in order to accompany the reform of the security sector and justice in Honduras
