Handbook describing approaches and best practices in the use of new technologies for the case management, circulation of documents, data collection in the legal field and communication of case law to the public. (Handbook 1.2)
As in other areas of public administration, justice is also faced by the challenge of the new technologies. The organisational revolution that assumes the application of ICT in any sector has major repercussions when analysing the world of justice. The impact of the new technologies affects both material means and the human resources working in the public service of justice. Besides this, it also affects all professionals whatever their relationship with the administration of justice, and, of course, it affects the final user of justice, that is, the public.
Aware of the diversity of factors and elements that are part of introducing new technological means to the justice sector, we have tried in this study to adopt the approach of access to justice from the ICT point of view in the following ENPI South countries:
- The Democratic Republic of Algeria
- The Arab Republic of Egypt
- The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
- Lebanon (Lebanese Republic)
- The Kingdom of Morocco
- The Republic of Tunisia
The final result of our work appears in a list of seventy nine (79) best practices, the result of our discussions and agreements reached in the three work group meetings.
