JURIST Project highlights
An international consortium for court excellence from the United States of America (USA), Australia, Singapore, the World Bank and the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice has developed an international framework for court excellence. The approaches and tools advocated by the framework have proven to be an effective guide for judiciaries to continually improve their service delivery. The Project has therefore adopted the framework as a roadmap for Caribbean courts to achieve the ultimate outcome of a judicial system that is more responsive to the needs of women, men, youth, business and the poor. Courts become centres of excellence through a four step cycle of a) self-appraisal b) planning c) implementation and b) evaluation. The cycle is continuously applied.
