Practitioners in the justice sector confront difficult challenges in sorting through how the plethora of different e-justice technologies affect the accessibility, legitimacy, legality, and economy of judicial systems. These judicial values are crucial determinants of the quality of justice and the adoption of e-justice technologies should depend on how they affect those values. This report presents a methodology and toolkit that practitioners and analysts can use to navigate the design and assessment of e-justice projects to guide decisions on e-justice investments. It highlights factors that must be considered in deciding whether an information and communication technology project is likely to improve the judiciarys performance and, in turn, support political and economic development in Latin America and the Caribbean.
