Justice de première ligne

Désolé, aucune traduction disponible.


The article proposes a model for rapidly re-establishing a functioning justice system in societies shattered by crisis. The Front-Line Justice system is based on the quick deployment of “justice shelters” in communities, in which trained local jurists give legal information and advice, and local judges issue emergency safeguard orders and mediate disputes between parties. The mandate of the justice shelters is broad, and comprises civil, family, and administrative as well as criminal matters. The shelters are designed to rebuild confidence in the administration of justice by addressing all the justice needs of the local population, rather than limiting themselves to criminal matters or transitional justice issues. As such, the Front-Line Justice system builds on other initiatives, particularly those growing out of the United Nations’ Brahimi Report, and offers a way to address emergency justice issues, but also to move forward towards the re-establishment of working and accepted permanent institutions of justice.
