Informal Justice Systems: Charting a Course for Human Rights-Based Engagement

This Study conducts an indepth analysis into Informal Justice Systems (IJS) in Development Partner-assisted Justice Interventions and seeks to identify how engagement with IJS can build greater respect and protection for human rights.

Despite IJSs resolving up to 80% of disputes in some countries this is a relatively novel area of study. Given the central role and increasing government and partnering donor interest in IJS, it is key to build an understanding of IJS and how best to engage with them for the strengthening of human rights, the rule of law and access to justice.
