Community Paralegals and Customary and Informal Justice (Summary Handout)

This is a summary handout of the publication “Navigating Complex Pathways to Justice: Community Paralegals and Customary and Informal Justice”, which explores how community-based paralegals and other legal aid providers can strengthen the accessibility and inclusiveness of customary and informal justice (CIJ) systems. It brings together leading-edge research and the grounded experience of IDLO programs in several sub-Saharan African countries to address:

  • the key functions of community-based paralegals in contexts of legal pluralism, including paralegal support for women and marginalized populations
  • creating an enabling environment for sustainable community paralegal engagement with CIJ systems
  • recommendations for policymakers and practitioners seeking to improve the accessibility and inclusiveness of CIJ systems
