LRF recognises the important role played by alternative justice systems that exist and are utilised by communities in resolving disputes. Most of these mechanisms are established in the constitution but are not necessarily utilised due to inadequate awareness. These mechanisms include traditional dispute resolution mechanisms among the communities in Kenya, established tribunals, etc. Although ADR and TDRM are recognised in the Constitution of Kenya 2010, little has been done to monitor their decisions and if they are compatible with the constitutional requirements for justice systems. LRF has done a study on TDRM and will focus on operationalising it by empowering the players to eradicate unconstitutional serve communities fairly.
This thematic area shall be delivered under the AoJ theme through two (2) projects namely:
