Under Objective 2, the Program works to increase the use of alternative dispute resolution, ensure that commercial laws are in accord with European Union and international best practices, and improve public awareness of commercial dispute and enforcement mechanisms. The Program is tentatively scheduled to continue its work through February 2026.

The Gender Specialist will report to the Program’s Chief of Party and work closely and collaboratively with all Program team members to identify gender issues relevant to the Program’s activity areas and to design, and help implement, approaches that address gender issues across all Program objectives and activities. The Gender Specialist’s role is to help increase the coherence and coordination of approaches and to share best practice and lessons learned in strengthening women’s access to, and participation in, commercial justice.
