    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Young Faculty Award (YFA) program aims to identify and engage rising stars in junior faculty positions in academia and equivalent positions at non-profit research institutions and expose them to Department of Defense (DoD) and National Security challenges and needs. In particular, this YFA will provide high-impact funding to elite researchers early in their careers to develop innovative new research directions in the context of enabling transformative DoD capabilities. The long-term goal of the program is to develop the next generation of scientists and engineers in the research community who will focus a significant portion of their future careers on DoD and National Security issues. DARPA is particularly interested in identifying outstanding researchers who have previously not been performers on DARPA programs, but the program is open to all qualified applicants with innovative research ideas.

Access to Justice for the Juvenile Offender Population: Opportunities for Judicial and ... - 0 views

  •  
    This project should generate an increase in the number of juvenile offenders referred to and/or completing alterative sentences, reduce recidivism, and facilitate access to justice for particularly vulnerable juvenile populations, including migrants, the disabled, afro-descendent and indigenous populations, and juveniles suffering from addiction, especially in Limón, Pococí, Puntarenas, San Carlos, the Southern Zone near the Panamanian border, and other vulnerable areas, as identified. Project activities should also facilitate the reinsertion of juvenile offenders into their communities by identifying educational and employment options for juvenile offenders, providing tools and strategies to facilitate their engagement with the formal education and employment sectors, and increasing access to drug treatment services. The project should also increase the services available to victims of juvenile offenders, by adapting the restorative justice framework to address the particular needs of this population, and equip a larger population of Poder Judicial staff to apply restorative techniques and provide continuity to the project by training future staff.

Justice Sector Technical Assistance Program - 0 views

  •  
    The Higher Judicial Council (HJC) is the main body charged with improving and reforming the judiciary. However, the HJC admittedly does not have the technical expertise to make these wide-ranging, systemic reforms in the two areas indicated above. The technical expertise from an implementer would provide expert advice and training on how to prosecute and adjudicate complex criminal cases that involve the use of technical evidence and/or evidence derived from modern forensic techniques, especially as they relate to cases involving money laundering, cybercrime, and terrorism. Training, advice, and mentorship are also needed on the development and use of a plea bargaining system and on alternatives to incarceration that are written in the law, but implemented on an ad hoc basis. There are alternatives to incarceration laws on the books, i.e. setting bail and parole for minor misdemeanor cases, however they are either not used or used on an inconsistent basis. There is no law on plea bargaining.

BJA FY 18 Justice Accountability Initiative: National Training and Technical Assistance... - 0 views

  •  
    The Justice Accountability Initiative (JAI) is a data-driven approach that can help state, local, and tribal criminal justice agencies analyze, understand, and address reducing recidivism and crime. The overall goal of JAI is to reduce crime by reducing the risk of recidivism, particularly violent recidivism. State and local agencies can accomplish this goal by creating and improving risk prediction tools , needs assessments and supervision plans, and building data-sharing and notification systems across criminal justice stakeholders. These strategies will also save in costs and improve operational efficiencies that can be reinvested in proven strategies to reduce crime and recidivism.

Court Archiving Project - Lebanon - 0 views

  •  
    Lebanon's current court archiving system is insufficient to meet the demands of the caseload of the justice sector. The goal is to support the Lebanese judicial system to establish and use a legal archival system for paper and electronic cases in order to process cases more efficiently and effectively and to have the ability to retrieve past court proceeding files. As part of this project, the implementer will train file attendants/court clerks (those responsible for this process) on proper filing conventions, document preservation, tracking of files released/returned (including tracking the individual documents contained in each file to ensure files are whole upon return) and other areas related to paper and electronic file maintenance identified as-needed.

National Survey of Prosecutors, 2019 (NSP19) - 0 views

  •  
    Under 34 U.S.C. § 10132 (c)(3), the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) is authorized to “collect and analyze data that will serve as a continuous and comparable national social indication of the prevalence, incidence, rates, extent, distribution, and attributes of crime.” To support this goal, BJS has conducted prior surveys of prosecutors and will update that information collection with this solicitation. The National Survey of Prosecutors, 2019 (NSP19) will focus on the administration of prosecution activities. The survey will update basic information, such as office size, types of staff and resources, as well as emerging issues important to the Attorney General’s priorities, such as the prosecution of violent crime, human trafficking, cybercrime, and responses to the opioid crisis. The survey will also collect information on problem-solving courts, prosecutorial diversion, processing of forensic evidence, plea bargains, and trials. There are over 2,300 prosecutor offices in the U.S. The recipient of funds will be asked to verify and update the sampling frame, design a sampling strategy, design a survey of state prosecutor offices, convene at least one meeting of a panel of experts to review the survey instrument and survey contact strategies, and submit the sampling plan and survey to BJS. After approval, the team will field the survey, collect the data, deliver the data to BJS, and work with BJS to analyze and report the data.

Strengthening Implementation of Anti-Corruption Standards in Europe - 0 views

  •  
    This award will support efforts in at two or three of five target countries (select among: Romania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Armenia, and Montenegro) to identify priority substantive anti-corruption measures and assist in implementation of related reform actions. The substantive measures will be determined in reference to the countries' commitments in the context of relevant international standards, and to the recommendations of the peer review bodies associated with those standards. Several anti-corruption mechanisms and fora promote action on these standards by facilitating peer reviews, resulting in recommendations for reform, or by generating country commitments. Exemplar mechanisms and fora include UNCAC and GRECO (primary) and the Anti-Bribery Convention, Istanbul Action Plan, Open Government Partnership, and related policy (secondary). Each of the target countries has engaged in at least one of these entities and has received recommendations or made commitments to address corruption in various ways. INL intends for this project to initiate a multi-stakeholder process in each country selected for this project to prioritize two to three peer review body recommendations addressed to - or political commitments made by -- the country. The project should then support the development of action plans and targeted follow-up action (i.e. technical assistance, advocacy, and coordination) to help governments implement the action plans. Suggested focus areas in which to develop priorities, action plans, and follow-up measures could include judicial integrity/independence, criminalizing and enforcing foreign bribery, transparency of party funding and electoral campaigns, law enforcement reforms, and public procurement fraud and corruption. Supporting action in these areas would aid the criminal justice sector and civil society in making tangible steps to adopt laws, policies, or procedures that either prevent or combat corruption.
