The Judicial Reform and Institutional Strengthening (JURIST) Project together with the judiciary of Barbados, will conduct Part II of the Gender Sensitive Adjudication Training from December 6 – 7, 2019 at the Radisson Aquatica Resort, Bridgetown, Barbados.
Part I was also a two-day training and was held from July 26-27, 2019. The timing of this training is ideal as the judiciary of Barbados recently appointed additional judges to the bench and this training will support the continued improvement of the capacity of judicial officers to be more gender sensitive in their adjudication.
One of the JURIST Project’s immediate outcome is intended to improve the capacity of courts to deliver gender responsive services to court users. The Project has sought to do this in three ways: development of Gender Equality Protocols, Gender Sensitisation Training and development and implementation of a Gender Equality Accountability Tool. The training will culminate in a closing ceremony at the same venue.
