Justice for the poor (J4P) briefing notes

June 2007 - present

 

These briefing notes provide regular updates about Justice for the Poor (J4P) program activities, including research findings. They facilitate sharing of lessons learned and good practice in the area of justice and development. J4P is a World Bank program that engages with justice reform as a cross-cutting issue in the practice of development. Grounded in evidence-based approaches focused on the perspective of the poor and marginalized, the program aims to improve the delivery of justice services and to support sustainable and equitable development processes which manage grievance and conflict stresses effectively.

 

Some issues are available in Tetum.
