Show Summary Details

Preview

Acknowledging the importance of sound judicial systems to good governance and economic growth, the World Bank and several other donor organizations have funded judicial reform projects in more than two dozen developing countries and transition economies during the past few years.

This article surveys a wide range of current studies on judicial reform and finds some surprising results.
