Beginning with country background, including its historical and legal context and conditions of the defense advocate legal profession in Kyrgyzstan, the LPRI provides benchmarks in such critical areas as qualifications; professional freedoms and guarantees; legal services; conditions and standards of practice; professional associations; and interaction with representatives of other areas of the justice sector, including law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges.

This is why the youth attracts the attention of politicians, government structures, and public organizations.

KRTI commissioned a series of case studies from independent, third party researchers to review a selection of activity clusters and document results and lessons learned. The purpose of these case studies is twofold. First, they are intended to provide an independent, third party perspective on the results of specific clusters of activities.

Researchers were asked to evaluate the validity of KRTI‘s programmatic assumptions and determine whether activities achieved their intended output and outcome objectives. The studies were also intended to evaluate the success of a group of small grants, aggregating outcomes to determine a broader programmatic result. In this way, the studies are a key component of the program‘s overall monitoring and evaluation effort.

Second, these case studies are intended to identify programmatic and strategic lessons learned and provide recommendations to inform future programming. As KRTI ends, initiatives by government, civil society, and the international community will continue to address the themes and sectors KRTI targeted. These case studies will serve as one means of contributing to future efforts. These case studies will also help to inform stabilization and political transition work more broadly within OTI and USAID.
