ItemBrief 10 : Comparative findings and analysis across community advice offices(2022) Martins, Winnie; Friedman, Carol; Mukorera, SophiaThis brief begins by comparatively analysing the quantitative data and outcomes from the ten case studies. It then compares the community-based paralegals’ (CBP) responses to the lines of inquiry, followed by thematic CBPs, focus group, and organisational affiliates responses. This brief analyses the data collected in relation to the five objective of the study which are to conduct cost-benefit analysis of the ten community advice offices (CAO) participating in the study; develop any evidence-based arguments regarding financial and human capital sustainability for and appropriate regulation and institutionalisation of the CAO sector; investigate ways that CAOs and CBPs advance African ways of knowing justice and governance in furtherance of Sustainable Goal 16; establish the role of network governance by CAOs regarding facilitation of effective justice system; and determine how to empower the CBP voice from a focus on basic justice services delivery to articulation of CAO sector advocacy and reform. The comparative analysis is presented according to each objective of the study. ItemBrief 2 : community-based participatory research methodology(2022) Mukorera, Sophia; Martins, Winnie; Centre for Community Justice and Development (CCJD)The study focuses on the models used by community advice offices in the South African provinces of Eastern Cape, Free State, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo and Mpumalanga during the period 2016 to 2018. Case management strategies were investigated, a cost-benefit analysis conducted and the perceptions of CBPs and service recipients on different aspects of community-based justice delivery were explored. This brief describes the research design and strategy followed in this study, which was driven by the community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach. The methods used for sampling, data collection and data analysis are discussed. The reliability and validity of findings are considered in the context of the mixed-methods approach that was used. Ethical considerations and the possible limitations of the research design are discussed, as well as benefits that were found related to the use of the CBPR approach. The brief concludes with a summary.

There is limited research on the role of network governance by CAOs and community-based paralegals (CBPs) regarding the facilitation of effective access to justice in South Africa. There is, therefore, a need to bring the experiences of CBPs and service recipients in this regard into the open. This brief describes network governance and the nature of work that requires network governance; whom the CBPs network with and how they build the network; and the challenges and benefits they experience and opportunities to improve their networks. The brief presents the perspectives of CBPs and service recipients at the ten CAOs in this study, organized according to the five provinces where they are located. Evidence from two case narratives is presented. Comparative findings across all ten cases are presented, along with a summary of findings.
