Quality and assessment of justice systems

Research coordinator: Francesco Contini

quality-of-serviceDiscussions and controversies on the peace of litigation, judicial reasoning, treatment of the parties, use - or waste - of public funds are common experiences of courts and prosecutors’ offices. In such debates, the quality of justice is often set against efficiency. However, a justice system providing high quality services and adjudication cannot be inefficient. Efficiency and effectiveness, along with independence, impartiality and equality before the law, consistency and understandability of judgments, respect and care of the people involved in proceedings are some of the values and principles that should drive the functioning of judicial administration. This is a perspective that has to be affirmed in the debates, granted by institutional mechanisms and empirically assessed. Judicial evaluation is the key to understand if and how judges and prosecutors, courts and prosecutors’ offices administer justice in accordance with such founding principles. The research we carry out and the technical advise we provide in this field have therefore the ambition to identify and promote comprehensive approaches to judicial evaluation, so to consider the full spectrum of founding values, as well as to analyse and promote policies to improve its quality.
