The reform of criminal justice systems has become a priority for the international com. munity in its efforts to assist transitional and post conflict societies in re establishing the. rule of law In different parts of the world from Afghanistan to Iraq Haiti to Liberia. numerous international and regional organizations bilateral donors and non governmen. tal organizations are engaged in a variety of activities aimed at rebuilding or developing. criminal justice systems, The men and women sent by the international community to advise post conflict States. on specific facets of criminal justice reform are talented dedicated and hard working. However their determination to make a difference can lead them especially those. unfamiliar with the requirements of operating in unstable and unpredictable post conflict. environments to focus solely on their own aspects of criminal justice reform and lose. sight of the challenges and complexities of criminal justice reform as a whole. While focusing on one s own reform project is understandable such a focus is decidedly. detrimental to the prospects of rebuilding an effective criminal justice system These sys. tems may have many moving parts that do not function in isolation but rather are elabo. rately interconnected with each component affecting all others For instance a seemingly. modest change in the law on domestic violence may influence the number of arrests made. by the police which may have a cascading affect on the caseloads of prosecutors and. defence counsel the work of the courts the number of people sent to prison and the pro. grammes to reintegrate offenders back into society. Such connected systems cannot be successfully reformed in an unconnected fashion One. should not expect to improve policing in a post conflict State merely by redrafting police. procedures and giving the police more resources Significant and sustainable improve. ments in policing also depend on changing the capacity of the courts enhancing respect. for human rights remoulding public attitudes towards law enforcement and introducing. a range of other measures some of which may seem only distantly related to policing. In recognition of these complexities the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. UNODC and the United States Institute of Peace USIP have collaborated to produce. a guide designed to introduce individuals whose experience in promoting the rule of law. may be limited whether in extent or scope to the entire landscape of criminal justice. reform Previous studies by other organizations have explored specific areas of criminal. justice reform but this guide seeks to examine the full breadth of activity from policing to. courts to prisons from the formal justice system to customary courts to civil society. criminal justice reform in post conflict states a guide for practitioners. Over the course of the project UNODC and USIP enlisted experts in all facets of criminal. justice reform and experienced practitioners of programmes in many different post. conflict and transitional countries and areas e g Afghanistan Bosnia and Herzegovina. Cambodia El Salvador Haiti Iraq Kosovo Liberia Malawi Nepal Sudan Timor Leste. to contribute their knowledge and experience to the project That expertise has been dis. tilled into this volume through a process of review and revision designed to create a work. of substantive quality and practical value, This guide s chief ambition is not to offer detailed advice to specialists but rather to pro. vide a general overview and to enable specialists in all areas to see their own activity within. the broad context of the criminal justice reform process The guide examines particular. facets of reform activity courts detention police reform surveys the wider landscape of. criminality in post conflict and transitional States and addresses key skills such as pro. gramme management and capacity development pertinent to all types of reform It also. encourages readers to delve more deeply into particular areas and lists a wide range of. further reading and resources to facilitate such explorations. The breadth of coverage in this volume reflects the scope of interests of the two organiza. tions that conceived and piloted the project UNODC is mandated by the United Nations. Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice to assist nations in reforming their. criminal justice systems with international standards and norms and it operates in all. regions of the world through an extensive array of field offices USIP is mandated by the. United States Congress to promote research education and training in the prevention. management and resolution of international conflict and conducts or supports work that. seeks peaceful solutions to conflicts around the globe Among the many ways in which. these two institutional missions overlap is the interdependence of security rule of law and. development As is increasingly recognized the presence of security and the rule of law. provide a platform for development in the economic social and political arenas Develop. ment in turn can assist in strengthening long term security and the rule of law. UNODC and USIP s partnership on this project is a natural outgrowth of past collaboration. between two organizations recognized as leaders in the field of criminal justice reform. Members of USIP s Rule of Law programme participated in reviewing drafts of UNODC s. Criminal Justice Assessment Toolkit and UNODC s partnership was valuable in the develop. ment of USIP s Model Codes for Post Conflict Criminal Justice Both the Criminal Justice Assess. ment Toolkit and the Model Codes have been widely hailed for their authoritative and original. contributions to a rapidly evolving and highly challenging field of international endeavour. We trust that this new guide will prove equally valuable to those individuals and organiza. tions who strive to help the citizens and governments of post conflict and transitional States. rebuild the rule of law, Yury Fedotov Richard Solomon.

This guide describes a cross section of the key challenges and lessons that have emerged. from recent international efforts to strengthen and reform criminal justice administra. tion in post conflict and transitional States Although the body of literature in this field. is growing few publications to date share the goal of this guide namely to introduce. basic issues resources strategies and programming options to professionals who are. joining the field, As befits a guide for practitioners this book has a decidedly pragmatic focus Although it. covers many of the scholarly issues involved in criminal justice reform it devotes the bulk. of its attention to describing in the most practical terms possible a body of knowledge. that an international justice advisor hereafter simply advisor needs in order to be effec. tive immediately upon deployment in a foreign country. The intended audience for this guide consists of the men and women who are sent abroad. by governments intergovernmental organizations and non governmental organizations to. advise and consult with local counterparts on how to develop and improve local criminal. justice systems These advisors are drawn from a variety of professional backgrounds for. example the legal profession the judiciary the police the corrections and the develop. ment community as well as non governmental organizations NGOs and civil society. communities and bring with them an equally broad range of expertise and experience. Each advisor is likely to work on a discrete element of criminal justice reform However if. an advisor is to work effectively and to integrate his or her efforts with the work of col. leagues he or she must understand all the elements involved in the criminal justice system. as a whole, As an advisor becomes more involved in assisting in the reform of a particular justice sys. tem a multitude of complex issues will naturally arise This guide does not explore all such. issues in great detail instead it is designed to serve as an introduction.
