  • Justice Needs and Satisfaction in The United Arab Emirates: From Legal Problems to Legal Innovations

    Justice Needs and Satisfaction in The United Arab Emirates: From Legal Problems to Legal Innovations 22 May 2017

    By Sam Muller, HiiL CEO

    The Ministry of Justice of the United Arab Emirates and HiiL Innovating Justice collaborated in 2016 to identify and map out the legal challenges in the daily lives of the people living in the United Arab Emirates.

    Almost four thousand randomly selected individuals from across the Emirates were interviewed about their needs for just and fair processes and resolutions. People were asked whether they faced problems, which could have been resolved with legal means. We also asked locals and expats about their responses to the legal challenges. Where do they look for legal information and advice? Which justice journeys do they travel in order to receive fair resolutions? What are their perceptions of the quality of the dispute resolution procedures? How they see the outcomes of such processes?

    HiiL Launches Justice Data Report on Tunisia 11 May 2017

    By Sam Muller, HiiL CEO

    The voices of just over 7500 Tunisian citizens from all over the country were heard as we launched our latest justice data report in Tunis on 9 May. The first copy of the report was presented to H.E. Minister of Justice Jeribi, in the presence of the Dutch ambassador to Tunisia, H.E. Hans van Vloten Disselvelt, senior judges, prosecutors, the president of the Bar Association, leading academics, ministry officials, and representatives of the media.

    In his address to the meeting Minister Jeribi commended the efforts by HiiL for this very important study. The first step in any reform, he said, is to have a sound diagnosis of the reality on the ground. We need to have the accurate data and dashboards in order to be able to design the efficient and effective tools for reform. He also emphasized the importance of making real change, in ways that benefit citizens.

    The report is available from our website in Arabic and English. A French summary is also available.
