Digital Transformation for People-Centred Justice

This event happens during the OECD Virtual Global Roundtable on People-Centered Justice – 30 and 31 March 2021


Digital technology offers unique tools that may assist to facilitate seamless and efficient dispute resolution and people-centred pathways, across a wide range of justice and other human services. It can help automate current processes and make them more efficient and accessible to individuals, create new pathways to justice and provide direct access to justice services. Indeed, during the COVID-19 crisis technology has shown a massive potential to reduce costs of justice for individuals and states, and to increase efficiency by cutting duration and complexity of processes. Nearly all OECD member countries have developed innovative approaches using technology, ranging from creation of virtual courtrooms and civil registries, to development of dematerialised ADRs and to WhatsApp helplines for abuse victims. Yet, careful approaches are needed to prevent technological innovations from creating or reinforcing barriers to equal access to justice or undermining fairness and the rule of law.
