Accessing Justice: Somalia's Alternative Dispute Resolution Centers
Accessing Justice: Somalia's Alternative Dispute Resolution Centers reviews structural, procedural, and normative dimensions of justice in six Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Centers in Somalia, documenting insights from ADR Coordinators, Clerks, paralegals, and Adjudicators as well as users of the Centers.
An integral part of achieving Sustainable Development Goal 16 is adopting a people-centered approach that ensures inclusive engagement, involving women and marginalized groups. ADR Centers in Somalia are improving the availability and accessibility of justice through cost-effective, context-specific and innovative ways. While barriers to formal justice institutions remain challenging, ADR Centers offer simple, proportionate and sustainable options that help empower participants.
The research findings identify recommendations and action areas for future ADR policy and programming to advance access to justice for all.
