Enhancing Justice Delivery
The Open Justice project uses tech tools to improve the justice sector by making the workings of the judiciary easier to understand and scrutinize. It also monitors court cases in compliance with the law to reduce delays in trials and improve efficiency while fostering courtroom openness, data transparency, and citizens’ participation in judicial processes.
The project has built an open database of corruption cases in Nigeria (https://corruptioncases.ng/) to be used as an effective instrument to enhance public and external scrutiny by providing information that helps citizens and stakeholders to track and map trends and patterns of prosecution and trial of corruption cases in compliance with relevant laws.
It also assesses the performance of key elements of the justice system which serves as a vehicle to fight corruption, promote judicial reforms, and uphold rights of fair hearings in court.
