MEXICO CITY, MEXICO — The Instituto de Justicia Procesal Penal (IJPP) is an independent organization that supports the reform of the Mexican criminal justice system and provides technical assistance to state governments in their implementation of the reform. With MacArthur support IJPP will address key gaps that undermine the effectiveness of the new system in the eight states where it is operational. The project will better protect the rights of victims and the accused, generate stricter compliance with due process guarantees, and improve public and media support for the system.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Instituto de Justicia Procesal Penal $250,000 between 2003 and 2014.
