Commercial Justice Workshop – sharing the knowledge
September 14, 2012
ICF is organising a Commercial Justice Workshop to be held on the 13th and 14th August 2012 in Lusaka, Zambia.
The event will bring together Chief Justices and Heads of judicial reform programs from more than 20 African countries. Participants will discuss their ideas, experiences and best practices in using information and communication technology (ICT) to reform the judiciary.
The aim of the workshop is to enable participants to share their knowledge on judicial reforms especially in the use of ICT to promote transparency, accountability and efficiency. It also aims to identify areas where they can collaborate in promoting judicial and legal reforms.
Zambia and Mauritius will showcase their judiciary projects and the impacts they have been able to achieve in terms of using ICT in expediting delivery of justice and contract enforcement.
Swift delivery of justice is essential in enabling a conducive business environment. Countries that have taken significant steps to ensure that their judiciary is transparent, accountable and efficient have noticed a direct impact on their business environments.
ICF is supporting nine countries and two regional blocs in improving their judicial systems in terms of operations and laws.
