In 2009, AusAID will provide funding to the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL), established in 2002 jointly by Sierra Leone and the UN, in response to the 1991-2002 Sierra Leone civil war.

The SCSL is mandated to try those who bear the greatest responsibility for serious violations of international humanitarian law and Sierra Leonean law committed in the territory of Sierra Leone since November 1996.

This partnership with the UN and other donors aims to assist the SCSL with greater financial security to ensure that SCSL continues to make an effective contribution to Sierra Leone's post conflict recovery.
