We identify justice problems
Our rule of law and justice sector assessments provide independent and specific recommendations on how legal institutions can uphold the rule of law and ensure people’s access to justice. We assess if the justice system is able to deliver on these fundamental principles in practice.
With a broad membership of legal professionals, we work together with national partners to identify specific challenges to the country we assess. In that way, we are able to match specific expertise to a specific justice need and context.
We engage with judges, lawyers and prosecutors as colleagues, working together to change mindsets and to improve how national partners respond to specific justice needs.
Together, we are interested in how it really works: Can lawyers defend? Can judges judge impartially? Can the state lose in court? Can you buy justice?
