Designing Justice Surveys In South Sudan

Designing Justice Surveys In South Sudan

The South Sudan Law Society (SSLS) is a civil society organisation based in Juba. Its mission is to strive for justice in society and respect for human rights and the rule of law in South Sudan. The SSLS manages projects in a number of areas, including legal aid and paralegal training, human rights awareness-raising, and capacity-building for legal professionals, traditional authorities, and government institutions.

Integrity survey designer James Khalil PhD  recently assisted SSLS in the design of their Rural Justice System Assessment, as part of the wider Rural Access to Justice Project, a ten-month long project funded by Pact Sudan through a grant from the U.S. State Department.

The aim of the research component is to improve the understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the justice systems in six rural counties of South Sudan, using a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods. The six counties at the centre of this project are Budi and Ikotos in Eastern Equatoria, Akobo and Pibor in Jonglei, and Renk and Nasir in Upper Nile.
