Community-Based Justice Research (CBJR)

The Community-Based Justice Research Project (2018-2020) aims to compare the costs, benefits, challenges and opportunities for providing and scaling access to community-based justice services in Canada, Sierra Leone, Kenya and South Africa.

The Supporting and Synthesizing Community-Based Justice Research Project (Community-Based Justice Research Project) is a three-year, multi-country research initiative in support of the International Development Research Centre’s (IDRC’s) “Understanding the Costs and Benefits of Community-Based Justice Services” collection of research projects. The Community-Based Justice Research Project, which is funded by the IDRC, involves a comparative study of the costs, benefits and challenges of providing access to community-based justice services in Canada, Sierra Leone, Kenya and South Africa. The latter three countries form part of the IDRC’s “Understanding the Costs and Benefits of Community-Based Justice Services” collection of projects and are represented by the Centre for Alternative Policy Research and Innovation (CAPRI) in Sierra Leone, the Katiba Institute in Kenya and the Centre for Community Justice and Development (CCJD) in South Africa. The “Understanding the Costs and Benefits of Community-Based Justice Services” pan-African initiative is also being supported by Open Society Foundations (OSF).
