Comment & analysis
A functioning justice system that upholds the rule of law is considered a critical feature of peacebuilding, state-building and post-conflict recovery efforts. However the concept of ‘justice’ must also encompass notions that go far beyond the rule of law. If peace is to hold, or if conflicts are to be avoided in the first place, as much as we need to construct justice institutions that focus on quality service delivery, we also need to engage on the much more significant agenda of building just and fair societies.
