The Criminal Justice System in Zambia

"This policy brief discusses the efficacy of Zambia’s criminal justice system by focusing primarily on crime, policing, prosecution, the judiciary, prison service, customary justice and international instruments. Virtually all these facets share the same weaknesses with regard to capacity, for example poor funding, inaccessible data, inadequate remuneration of staff, poor training, poor infrastructure, and human rights abuses. This policy brief also recommends requisite key reforms for each sector."
