Scaling access to justice research collaboration : Kenya
The promulgation of Kenya’s 2010 Constitution provided an impetus for enhanced access to justice for Kenyans through use of alternative dispute resolution including traditional mechanisms. Existing research had shown that majority of the population does not use the formal court process to access justice. Thus, the need for more information on the initiatives used to resolve disputes was necessary to not only document them but also learn about their effectiveness and sustainability with a view making recommendations on their suitability for scaling up access to services. It was against this backdrop the project was conceived. Overall, the project sought to contribute towards catalyzing deeper and more sustained efforts, at a national and global level, to scale basic legal services and ensure access to justice for all through the building of new evidence and models of analysis.
