Promoting Pre-trial Justice in Africa (PPJA)
Promoting Pre-trial Justice in Africa (PPJA) aims to collect and organise information on pre-trial justice in Africa and make this available and accessible to a broad audience of stakeholders in a manner that can inform decision-making and improve practice, thereby promoting pre-trial justice in Africa.
There is a growing body of knowledge and practical experience around pre-trial justice reform projects which, if harnessed, can enhance pre-trial justice in Africa. PPJA aims to be a repository of such knowledge and experience.
