The growing number of specialized courts and judicial initiatives in Uganda and the varied approaches they take indicate that the judiciary, government, communities and service providers are searching for effective solutions to challenges in the justice system. Currently, there is no province wide approach to specialized courts that engages the government and the judiciary jointly. This policy brief establishes a structured approach for current and future specialized courts that is rooted in validated practice, research and other approaches which engage the judiciary, justice system partners and other parties.
