Justice

OGP works to expand responsiveness, accountability and inclusion into all systems of justice. Justice is an emerging area in open government with a growing number of potentially high impact commitments.

Overview

Law impacts nearly every aspect of life, including health, employment, education, housing, and public safety.  Yet opaque processes, unequal access, and discrimination create barriers. According to the World Justice Project, two thirds of the world’s population face some justice problem with disproportionate impacts on the marginalized and poor.

In high- and upper middle-income OGP countries, housing, consumer, and financial problems are the most common legal problems. In less affluent OGP countries, problems of basic documentation and services are significantly more common.  

Expanding the role of open government in solutions requires broader engagement with the justice community at the national level, such as Ministries of Justice and at the ground level, including court systems and legal assistance organizations.  

OGP is bringing together a coalition of members and civil society organizations to further this engagement, share best practices and develop new commitments. The open government community is also working collectively to exchange best practices in indicator development around Sustainable Development Goal 16

OGP members that invest in building a fair and effective justice system will see returns impacting all OGP issues, particularly public service delivery and anti-corruption. 



Recommendations

  • Develop and deploy legal needs assessments. In Canada between 2011 and 2018, a multi-stakeholder group examined the social and economic costs of the justice system to better understand gaps.
  • Build legal capability by improving access to information. South Africa has created a system of lower-cost professional legal assistance through a network of paralegals. Ireland is establishing court-appointed advocates to work on behalf of adults with disabilities.
  • Strengthen resolution forums and processes. In 2018, Indonesia committed to creating regulations that guarantee funding for legal aid organizations, allowing them to expand their reach to more remote and impoverished communities.
  • Work to improve outcomes and reduce hardships, especially for under-represented communities. In 2014, Bulgaria committed to establishing problem-solving courts for children and people with disabilities. In 2017, Afghanistan’s Supreme Court established special courts, with female judges, to address violence against women.
