Access to Justice

In 2019, Pamoja Trust undertook to promote access to justice by working close with a task force gazetted in 2016 and mandated to develop a policy to mainstream into the formal justice system, traditional, informal and other mechanisms used to access justice in Kenya. The trust consulted with key stakeholders i.e. the elders at the ASAL areas and the Court Users Committee members to document best practices and give recommendations that the task force used to enrich the policy. PT during this exercise also took into cognizant the fact that urban areas are occupied by special communities who have their own special ways of resolving conflict and most cases does not necessarily go to court hence dire need to recognize such alternatives of conflict resolution and mainstream them into the formal justice system.
