The Belize Judiciary, in partnership with the Judicial Reform and Institutional Strengthening (JURIST) Project, UN Women and the Caribbean Association of Judicial Officers (CAJO), is pleased to present this Gender Equality Protocol for Judicial Officers in Belize. The Gender Protocol is intended to promote awareness of the ways in which gender intersects with other social statuses to affect the justice system and its users, and to provide tools to help judicial officers achieve gender-sensitive adjudication.
An effective system of administration of justice is one of the fundamental pillars of a democratic society. A justice system can be lauded as effective only if all members of society enjoy full access and can avail themselves of the resources and services that exist to give effect to, or safeguard, their legal rights. These resources and services include all courts, court offices and other gateway services, such as the police and social services.
