The World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020 declared the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) a pandemic. The deleterious effects of COVID-19 have permeated virtually every facet of global society. The justice sector the world over has not been spared.
On 24 April 2020, Global Affairs Canada (GAC) hosted a meeting under the theme, ‘Immediate Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic’, for the Judicial Reform and Institutional Strengthening (JURIST) and the Improved Access to Justice in the Caribbean (IMPACT) Justice Projects. During that meeting, it was suggested that a regional forum be convened with justice sector stakeholders to discuss and assess the impact that the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has had on the justice sector within the Region.Report_Roadmap-CaribbeanJudiciaries20200521_compressed
