Rule-of-law tools for post-conflict States: Maximizing the legacy of hybrid courts
01 January 2008
Rule of law
This tool explores how hybrid courts can receive the mandates and political support required to be more effective in building capacity and bestowing an enduring legacy upon the justice system. Grounded in international human rights standards and inspired by best practices, this publication provides the indispensable information required to target interventions with regard to hybrid courts in particular, as well as domestic legal reform in general. Its goal is not dictating strategic and programmatic decision-making, since this must be shaped in the field as an appropriate response to specific circumstances and environments.
