New Study reveals Justice Needs of Ugandans

Justice Needs in Uganda: Legal problems in daily life Justice Needs in Uganda: Legal problems in daily life

 

A new study supported by Sweden reveals justice needs of Ugandans. The study was carried out by HiiL Innovating Justice and launched by the Principle Judge Hon. Dr. Yorokamu Bamwine in Kampala on April 13 2016.

 

The study shows that over a period of four years 90% of Ugandans experience justice needs, the most prevalent problems being related to land, family matters and crime. The study further showed that the Local Council Courts are the most trusted institution both for seeking information and solving disputes. The Embassy of Sweden is currently working with JLOS partners to design a new programme to enhance Access to Justice and Rule of Law in Uganda.

 

The study titled “Justice Needs in Uganda: Legal problems in daily life” is authored by Johanna Piest, Sam Muller, Martin Gramatikov, Kavita Heijstek-Ziemann, Jamila Sallali  (Published in 2016).
