Best Practices for an Affordable and Sustainable Dispute System: A Toolbox for Microjustice

By: Maurits Barendrecht

The paper collects best practices that can be derived from the disciplines that study disputes. It sketches how they may be combined in a low cost dispute system ran by a ‘Microjustice Facilitator’. The conclusion is that these five essential services are not inherently costly to produce for people with limited resources, although there are still many gaps in our knowledge about providing them efficiently, which calls for coordinated innovation processes. It is also likely that the transaction costs associated to delivering justice are part of the problem and the market for justice should be studied more thoroughly.
