The UK has been active in encouraging parties to the conflict to preserve state institutions and service provisions. We also engage closely with UN agencies on plans to revive basic functions of rule of law, which enfolds support to the judiciary. We have earmarked funding to support these efforts as soon as the operational context is permissible.
