About Adal

Virtual Training for Criminal Justice Sector of Pakistan – 2, commonly known as “ADAL”, is Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) commissioned nationwide program being implemented by Global Neighbourhood for Media Innovation. ADAL is an innovative, sustainable, and impactful solution that aims to strengthen the capacity-building capabilities of Pakistan's criminal justice institutions during and beyond the Covid-19 pandemic. Through its training programs, Adal aims to enhance public confidence, access to justice, and handling of crimes and criminal cases across the sector. Criminal justice practitioners, especially women, trained under ADAL will be more empowered, perform better at their duties, and advance in their careers by using the skills and knowledge imparted through the program. The program uses hi-tec virtual learning platform, also titled ADAL, to deliver customized synchronous and asynchronous training courses tailored to needs identified by criminal justice practitioners and local, international subject experts.

b. Women representation in the criminal justice sector is minimal (aprox. 5% in higher judiciary). They need soft skills to move forward in their careers.
c. Opportunities and access of justice sector personnel to specialized training courses in these areas are limited.
d. There is a lack of organized strategic, tactical understanding and skills development for crisis negotiations in current course curricula delivered at LEAs training institutes.
