Fair and effective judiciaries are central to strengthening the rule of law, ensuring equitable access to justice and upholding human rights. In many countries, judges and others working within the judiciary face complex challenges and receive limited training, support and professional development opportunities. Judicial Peer-To-Peer Learning To Strengthen The Rule Of Law: A Guide examines the value of facilitating peer-to-peer learning as a model for supporting judges and judiciaries internationally.
Drawing on the Programme’s experience in supporting judicial peer-to-peer exchanges and on interviews with judges and judicial experts involved in this work, the guide sets out some of the challenges and limitations of judicial peer-to-peer learning. Providing guidance on how to plan, facilitate and monitor judicial peer-to-peer initiatives, it is a valuable resource for actors in the judicial sector, including organisations working in partnership with judiciaries.
