ENSURING THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE
UN’S INTERNAL JUSTICE SYSTEM
The Office of Administration of Justice (OAJ) is an independent office, based in New York, responsible for the overall coordination of the formal components of the UN’s internal justice system. It is headed by an Executive Director appointed by the Secretary-General. OAJ was established at the outset of the system with the rationale that a separate Office of Administration of Justice, with operational and budgetary autonomy, would ensure the institutional independence of the system of internal justice.
“I am committed to supporting a well-functioning internal justice system that management and staff believe in, and that helps the Organization fulfill its promise to the peoples of the world.”
— Alayne Frankson-Wallace, Executive Director
Office of Administration of Justice (OAJ)
