1.       Introduction and policy description
In 2018, JSCA approved its Gender Equality Policy, the goal of which is to increase gender equality in the justice systems of the region. To that end, we have adopted a dual strategy that is based, on the one hand, on mainstreaming gender which, following the Beijing Conference, can be understood as “an active and visible policy of incorporation of the gender perspective into the monitoring and evaluation of all programs and policies.” This dual strategy is also composed of specific policies for equality that include positive actions and positive discrimination designed to correct the discrimination caused by the social system or social practices.
