Asia Pacific Judicial Reform Forum

The Asia Pacific Judicial Reform Forum (APJRF) resulted from the Manila Declaration on Judicial Reforms in November 2005. It is a network of superior courts and justice sector agencies from 49 countries. The main objective of APJRF is to create a network to support jurisdictions in Asia and the Pacific committed to advancing judicial reform. It aims to share knowledge, including lessons learned, problems faced, best practices, and potential model reform experiences from the region as well as globally. Its projects include the implementation of judicial reform initiatives; promoting access to justice; ethics and accountability; case management; and education and skills development.
