TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL CENTRE OF EXPERTISE IN THE JUDICIARY

Working to strengthen the TI Movements` capacity to advocate for integrity, independence & accountability in the judiciary and to engage and empower people to demand reform and strengthen judicial capacity to sanction the corrupt.

OUR WORK ON JUDICIARY

What's at stake

Either comprising only judges, or both judges, prosecutors and other officials, judiciary is perceived in most of the countries as the last remedy to inequalities, human rights violations and abuses against the most vulnerable.

But when judicial independence hides political interests or corruption, it ruins people`s lives and undermines democracy and rule of law.

To ensure a fair adjudication of each and every case, judiciary has to be independent, accountable and act with integrity.

WHAT WE'RE DOING ABOUT IT

 

We have identified 40 international documents setting over 110 standards and requirements for an independent, accountable and acting with integrity judiciary, and compiled them into a comprehensive document. We published the practical guide in August 2015 to serve as a reference framework to judicial officials and decision makers for consolidating integrity, where require. National civil society and international partners can equally use them as benchmarks against which to keep judiciaries accountable.

We have identified two typologies in judiciary`s failures to ensure justice for all. Those generated by systemic vulnerabilities that allow corruption to affect judiciary itself, and legal and practical gaps or loopholes that hinder the normal flow of corruption cases through prosecution and adjudication, leaving the afflicted with no answer.

To enhance knowledge, national research is undertaken to engage practitioners into identifying specific causes and formulate appropriate redress from inside the system. We look towards peer to peer engagement to enhance trust in judiciary and improve its performance.

Build on the existing and newly available knowledge we work together with our international, regional and national partners to scale up on the governments` and donors` agenda the importance of independent and accountable judiciaries to safeguard human rights, rule of law and democracy, and to curb corruption.

OUR APPROACH

 

Corruption undermines justice and ruins lives in many parts of the world. However, we believe that engaging a diverse spectrum of actors – judicial practitioners, decision makers, international donors, civil society, the business community and regular citizens – to demand an independent and honest judiciary, we can break this vicious circle.

To build functioning judiciaries that can effectively limit the devastating impact of corruption a change of attitude and practice is needed. To achieve a sense of achievability and urgency:

by facilitating the mapping, analysing and reporting of systemic failures that compromise the integrity, independence and accountability of the judiciary. This enhanced knowledge and new evidence will enable the proposal and adoption of concrete solutions that strengthen the integrity, independence and accountability of the judiciary.
to allocate financial and technical aid to justice sector reforms
that can at first appear technical and complicated – making them accessible to the public and a wider range of stakeholders.
such as TI in representing their society’s interest by both acting as a watchdog and engaging as a ‘critical friend
with the adequate channels to hold the judiciary accountable for delivering justice and for sanctioning the corrupt.
