This Government believes that a fair and effective criminal justice system is an essential underpinning for states seeking to respect human rights and to prosper. The UK has useful experience to offer other states. Our criminal justice advisers play a valuable role in sharing this experience to the mutual benefit of the UK and the international community.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has not conducted any formal assessment of the work of HMG country criminal justice advisers. These advisers, most of whom are employed by the Crown Prosecution Service, are based across a number of posts around the world.
