The microjustice workplace
This microjustice workplace is a collaborative platform to develop and find tools for effective dispute resolution. The tools can be used by everyone to develop a microjustice service that is based on best practices in dispute resolution from around the world.
Family disputes, property conflict, and labour issues: they disrupt lives. In essence, these legal problems are about people’s investments in their homes, land, family, business, and work. Protecting their rights in these investments is essential for economic development. Legal systems – formal or informal – are often not accessible for the poor. Improving access to justice; that is what microjustice is about.
The microjustice toolbox project is a collaborative project. You can find and/or add tools and legal information to share your knowledge and expertise to help others. The information that you can find on the website is developed by partners from around the world who are working on tools to support local dispute resolution projects. The partners also test these tools thoroughly in practice to make sure that they contribute to an effective path to justice for the people involved. See the collaborators page for more information.
We welcome your contribution on tools and sharing rules. Also you can help to improve this online workplace. Just create an account and become active in a workplace or email suggestions or ideas for improvement to email@example.com
Measuring Access to Justice
www.measuringaccesstojustice.com is our partner website where we share information about another TISCO project that aims to excell at gathering objective data on the quality of procedures. The objective is to get reliable data on the extent to which procedures constitute a path to justice for people and their legal needs. On this website you can find information about measuring methodologies and current results from research.
