Research on ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTIONS
The National Judicial Policymaking Committee (NJPC) of Pakistan issued data in August 2020 that showed that more than two million cases are pending in the Supreme Court, Federal Shariat Court, High Courts and District Courts. A continuous rise in pendency of cases is due to various reasons, however, the ultimate consequence is the delay to provide quick justice.
Therefore, in light of this pressing issue MIJ in association with Alif se Insanyiat has come together to advance a working paper highlighting legal gaps and suggesting reforms on the use of alternative dispute resolutions (ADR) in the province of Sindh by providing a comparative analysis of how ADR is being implemented in other jurisdictions.
The research is a registered partnership with the United Nations #SDGAction37719. The aim of the project is to create awareness and advance quick cost effective sustainable ways of resolving disputes in light of SDG#16. Read More.
