Con una exposición sobre los mecanismos alternativos al proceso judicial en la región, el director ejecutivo del Centro de Estudios de Justicia de las Américas, CEJA, Jaime Arellano, participó en la Reunión Técnica de los Ministerios de Justicia en Cooperación Jurídica en Acceso a la Justicia, realizado el 10 y 11 de diciembre en Cartagena de Indias, Colombia.

Esta reunión fue acordada en la IX Reunión de Ministros de Justicia u otros Ministros, Procuradores o Fiscales Generales de las Américas (REMJA), realizada en Ecuador el año 2012, con la finalidad de intercambiar información y experiencias en acceso a la justicia y de formular recomendaciones para fortalecer la cooperación jurídica hemisférica en este campo.

Jaime Arellano participó en el primer panel, denominado “Algunos desarrollos regionales y estudios y programas de la sociedad civil en acceso a la justicia”, con una visión práctica desde las políticas públicas, de los mecanismos alternativos al proceso judicial en la región. Junto a él, participaron en el panel la representante de Argentina ante la Comisión Interamericana de Mujeres (CIM), María Julia Rodríguez; el representante de la Secretaría General de la COMJIB, Federico Ruiz, la Directora Ejecutiva de la Corporación Excelencia en la Justicia de Colombia, Gloria María Borrero Restrepo; y el representante del Instituto de Defensa Legal de Perú (IDL), Ernesto de la Jara.

El director ejecutivo de CEJA explicó cómo se ha avanzado en la región desde una primera ola de mecanismos alternativos a la solución de conflictos (MASC), que en general no se han convertido en políticas públicas sustentables para favorecer de forma sistemática el Acceso a la Justicia, a una segunda ola, de Mecanismos Alternativos al Proceso Judicial (MAPJ), con orientación de políticas públicas con mayor direccionamiento hacia el perfil del ciudadano (a) que demanda estos servicios.

Destacó Arellano que con el apoyo de la International Development Research Centre, IDRC, de Canadá, CEJA está desarrollando una investigación que permitirá generar y diseminar un conjunto de recomendaciones dirigidas a las instituciones, académicos y operadores del sistema de justicia, para mejorar la discusión, elaboración e implementación de políticas públicas relativas a los MAPJ.

Dicha investigación comenzó en el año 2013 y en su primera fase se elaboró un estudio de línea de base que permitió determinar la información disponible, lo que arrojó la cifra de 207 MAPJ en 19 países de América Latina y el Caribe; se recopilaron más de 130 materiales bibliográficos y académicos que componen un Centro de Documentación especializado en Mecanismos Alternativos al Proceso Judicial y Acceso a la Justicia; y se construyeron infografías que dan cuenta de manera didáctica la realidad de los MAPJ en la región . Toda esta información está disponible en el sitio www.cejamericas.org.

El siguiente paso del proyecto – en desarrollo- es la elaboración de 4 estudios de caso de experiencias en la región: el Programa Nacional de Casas de Justicia en Colombia, los Centros de Mediación del Organismo Judicial en Guatemala, las Casas de Justicia de Bolivia, y un estudio de la Mediación Civil Obligatoria en Argentina.
