Civil Justice Reform

Justice goes beyond and is much more complex than the procedures applied to solve disputes that come before the courts. Following the establishment of a justice system, there is –or should be- a complex set of public policy objectives with a high level of social importance. Unfortunately, these are often unclear or simply not communicated, which may result in them being forgotten. Though this is valid for any initiative involving changes to the justice sector, it is especially important in the context of civil justice reform given the current context of increasing expansion.

Civil justice reforms must also make use of the experience that has been accumulated in other areas and in other places. It is thus important to recognize the knowledge accumulated in the region around criminal procedure reform and the changes made in civil justice systems elsewhere in the world.
