ILMU has continued to support legal, institutional and policy reforms as evidenced in the successful enactment of the National Coroner’s Service Act 2017, and the Prevention of Torture Act (POTA) 2017 besides playing a central role in reforming the National Police Service (NPS). Separately, IMLU was noted to have also contributed to enhancing forensic documentation, shaping national discourses on torture and CIDT, and coalescing different stakeholders to common causes such as was the case within the Police Reforms Working Group-Kenya.

The program aims to achieve the following specific objectives

IMLU’s work is anchored and derived from research, documentation, and data collection. Based on this, IMLU will continue to carry out targeted advocacy interventions aimed at creating change in legislation, policy and jurisprudence at national, regional and global levels, while building a robust framework and health support systems for redress and rehabilitation. In addition, develop tools, to strengthen its advocacy work including thematic reports and surveys, score cards and regular updates on advocacy achievements. Furthermore, IMLU will seek to promote strong judicial systems and jurisprudence that strengthens the right to rehabilitation, providing forensic expert support in legal cases. This will be achieved through building the capacity of criminal justice actors. This will ensure the proper implementation of judgments and legal decisions.
