Criminal Justice Reform
  • Register

Judicial reforms go beyond merely issuing new procedure codes. The success or failure of the reforms depends on their capacity to modify specific practices in the judicial system. In this sense, it is crucial to determine the true functioning of judicial systems beyond the intentions stated in the law. 

In this context, JSCA seeks to promote informed and systematic discussion of the functioning of judicial systems in the Americas and to contribute to strengthening justice reform processes. Specifically, it generates information on the performance of reformed systems, identifies implementation and operational problems, generates a foundation of support for the design of strategies for overcoming problems, revitalizes debate, enriches legal culture and, in doing so, reinforces the quality of judicial systems.
